    Good evening,
    
    NASA has posted the predicted TLEs for the first days of the STS-128 mission
    on this page :
    http://spaceflight1.nasa.gov/realdata/sightings/SSapplications/Post/JavaSSOP
    /orbit/SHUTTLE/SVPOST.html
    
    As usual the TLE for the coasting arc between MECO and OMS-2 firing has to
    be corrected and should be something like :
    STS-128 MECO
    1 00128U 09044A    9237.24067130  .01000000  16736-2  20000-3 0    17
    2 00128  51.6403 312.9029 0133919 349.7467  68.1002 16.47936766    17
    
    Launch is targeted at 05:36:05 UTC on Tuesday morning (Aug. 25).
    The observers in Europe won't be able to see the ET flying along with
    Discovery because of daylight.
    Here in North America, observers along the east coast and Maritime provinces
    in Canada should have a nice show.
