    The EchoStar IX/Telstar 13 communications satellite will be launched into orbit tonight at around
    11:31 pm edt or 3:31 UT ( Aug 8 ). 
    
    Because it's lauched from a platform sitting on the equator, it will have a 0 degree inclination
    orbit.

    It will be parked at 121 degrees west, which means roughly 20 degrees above the horizon for me. So
    I have a new to try and spot.
    
    Next Lauch is Aug 12 - soyuz rocket with a russian military satellite, and the SciSat 1 satellute
    using a Pegasus XL rocket.
