    I don't think I've seen this mentioned here 
    yet.  According to the flight timeline and 
    ground track map on 
    
    http://www.spaceflightnow.com/atlas/av016/status.html
    
    it seems to me that some of the high launch 
    events, especially venting of excess fuel, 
    if any, of the Wideband Global SatCom might 
    be observable from Africa and maybe southern 
    Europe (and possibly Brazil).  The launch 
    window is 8:31 to 9:33 p.m. Friday, April 3 
    EDT (0:31 to 1:33 Saturday, April 4 UTC).
