     I have been asked whether TLEs are available for this launch- I am not
    aware of any.
    
    However a launch schedule is at
    http://www.spaceflightnow.com/atlas/ac163/040411ascent.html  and using this
    and the track at
    http://www.spaceflightnow.com/atlas/ac163/040411track.html  (which is a copy
    of that in the .pdf file at the site I gave earlier) I imagine it would be
    possible to calculate this?  If so perhaps someone with expertise in this
    area could do so please.
    
     Unfortunately I am unable to watch the launch coverage as I will be at
    work- not to mention an abortive attempt to watch it 12 hours early owing to
    my reading the launch as a.m instead of p.m EDT :-)  (it was late evening
    here!- that's my excuse and if I had realised my error I would have got the
    sleep I needed a little earlier)  :-)
    
     Thanks
    Robert.
