    To the best of my knowledge, the best places to look for elsets for
    shuttle missions are:
    http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/realdata/sightings/SSapplications/Post/JavaSSOP/orbit/ISS/SVPOST.html
    http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/realdata/sightings/SSapplications/Post/JavaSSOP/orbit/SHUTTLE/SVPOST.html
    http://oig1.gsfc.nasa.gov/scripts/foxweb.exe/app01?
    and for less thoroughly obsessive needs:
    http://www.wingar.demon.co.uk/satevo/tle/iss.tle
    http://www.wingar.demon.co.uk/satevo/tle/sts.tle
    
    I would appreciate knowing about any resources you consider better and
    your reasons.
    
    But where is the best place to look for the times of upcoming
    maneuvers, especially dockings and undockings?  Please enlighten me.
    
    http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/spacenews/reports/sts97/STS-97-03.html
    reports:
    > No problems were reported aboard Endeavour as the shuttle sails toward
    > a docking with the ISS at 1:59 p.m. Central time Saturday.
    
    http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/realdata/sightings/SSapplications/Post/JavaSSOP/orbit/SHUTTLE/SVPOST.html
    lists:
    > 337/18:59:37.877           1.5               1.0              1.5
    > 001/15:53:36.927          -0.0               0.0              204.5
    > 000/00:00:06.672          -0.1               1.1              200.8
    
    Can these refer to the same maneuver?  Is there a 1 hour discrepancy?
    Isn't the defect for CST -6 hours?
    
    If they do refer to the same event, then what clues can one use to
    identify such an event in the list provided at
    http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/realdata/sightings/SSapplications/Post/JavaSSOP/orbit/SHUTTLE/SVPOST.html
    ?
    
    Thanks for any assistance.
    
    
    If you do have a shot at ISS in the near future, don't forget to look
    for the detached Progress cargo tug.  And please report what you see.
    
    
    Cheers.

    Of course, the American people want a few appointed judges to choose
    the President; that's why 100 million of them stood in line for up to
    3 hours in all kinds of weather to vote.
