    Hi everyone,
    
    The STS-134 launch on Friday will provide a rare opportunity to see the
    freshly jettisoned external tank fly in formation with Endeavour at around
    20:09 UTC over north-western and central Europe.
    
    Using the Vec2TLE program, I've corrected the published NASA TLE for the
    portion of orbit following MECO to give this :
    STS-134 MECO    
    1 00134U 11017A   11119.83218750  .01000000  18299-2  20000-3 0    16
    2 00134  51.6443  49.6487 0132731 348.7615  69.0869 16.48578511    17
    
    Launch is scheduled for 19:47:52 UTC and weather is 80 % favorable for now.
    
    Good luck to you in Europe for Friday !
