    Today they will attempt to launch the dart satellite. It's mission is to chase down and fly very
    near the MUBLCOM satellite. The mission last 24 hours. 
    
    Window to launch in, is between 1:21 to 1:28 p.m. EDT
    
    I hope it goes up today, tommorow I be busy helping for astro day.
    
    MUBLCOM makes a pass for my location starting at 8:54 pm. I hope to see both satellite's near each
    other. They say it will take around 8 hours, after launch for dart to hunt down, and get close to
    it's prey:)
     
    MUBLCOM's norad number is 25736
