    Paul and Harald,
    I assume that STS 110 will be already in the earth shadow before it climbs
    over our horizon
    just after launch. I verified this with following TLE emailed to SeeSat by
    Ted Molczan:
    1 99999U          02094.95310089  .00025948  12201-4  18433-4 0    10
    2 99999  51.6368  61.4230 0011454 285.1487 252.4856 16.17009401    03
    in fact for my own location. And yes my assumption was confirmed.
