    From my place here in NE Iowa, at 10:39:13 PM Central Daylight Time, Envisat
    will only be about 1.5 degrees from Vega which itself will be nearly
    overhead. The ARIANE 5 rocket body will be trailing about 4.5 degrees behind
    Envisat in the SSW direction.
    
    Thanks for the heads up Kevin!
