    wrong ! at 19:52 UT, with a 5 minute launch window. If sucessfull, it willl
    be visible from Europe about 22-25 minutes later, as TWO dots (shuttle plus
    main tank, ejected 10 minutes after launch , flying along, burning in
    atmosphere past India ). See
    http://eclipse.span.ch/atlantis.htm
    and http://www.spaceflightnow.htm

    I don't think so, www.spaceflightnow.com has a list with launch windows on
    27, 28, etc.
