    Congratulations to all who saw the Titan 4 launch!  
    
    Thank you very much to Ted for projected orbital data!
    
    Question:  The two Lacrosse-type elsets yield predictions
    for here in the morning around 11:00 UTC, but I'm not 
    clear on which of the TLEs is more accurate or how close 
    the data will be to the actual pass by that time.  By 
    then our weather may have improved from poor to pretty 
    good.  (The weather was so poor when I was coming home I 
    didn't get my act together to see if there could be an 
    evening pass here -- which apparently there was, a good
    one.)
    
    Questions 2 and 3:  Will the payload manuver?  How long
    will the launch stage remain in orbit?
