If Luch Rk survives until tomorrow evening as I expect, it
will make some beutiful passes over Central Europe. This is
TrakStar output from yesterday's elset. Try tonight also,
and post any timing you make ( since prediction inaccuracies
are up to about 10 minutes tonight unless you get newer elsets)
