Hello list,

A Falcon-9 will launch a Dragon capsule for the CRS-8 mission to ISS at
20:43 UT today.
I´ve ajusted the epoch of Jon´s estimate for CRS-6 of April last year.

DRAGON CRS-8 estimation                                  206 X 352 km
1 70001U 16024A   16099.86333333 0.00000000  00000-0  00000+0 0    07
2 70001  51.6477  45.5228 0109236  46.9782   2.4721 15.98433248    06

20 minutes after launch the Dragon, r/b and solar array covers are just
visible from my place
in the west (270 Az) at a height of 9 degrees at the top right of Orion
shortly before going
into shadow above Orion.
It is probably too low for me, but I´ll give it a try, weather permitting.

Good hunting,
Regards
Leo
