    The DSP was launched at 18:50 UT.
    The IUS second stage burn is scheduled for T+6:32.
    This would be 01:22 UT Feb 15 tonight.
    This will be south of the US - I'm not sure exactly what longitude
    at the present moment.
    I hope that this rocket firing will create a "comet" of about
    4th or 5th magnitude.  The IUS first stage should be nearby at
    about 11th magnitude.  The IUS second stage and the payload should
    be even fainter.
