Next Shuttle visible at night





Hi All
FYI,
The next shuttle mission STS-99 is going to be in a high in Inclination
orbit (57 degrees)
which means, it will pass over most of the world. 
It should be visible in the evening skies over the USA and Europe.

(After the launch check the nasa web pages for current keps and keep
your
tracking program updated daily to compensate for Engine burns)

This mission does not carry any amateur radio equipment.  However
they will be sending some high quality still images to earth via the
TDRS satellite
network for schools to monitor. 

73 Miles MAREX-NA
