    Hello to all European observers,
    Here is the TLE for the beginning of the first orbit of Discovery on Thursday
    night. Epoch is T+20 minutes, so it should be OK for those who want to try the
    difficult observation of the Shuttle and its external tank since they will be in
    shadow for most of the pass over Europe. Maybe those nearest the Atlantic will
    be able to see something low to the west.
