    Here's the orbital data for the ADEOS 2 satellite launched by a H-2A rocket.
    
    UNK
    1 27597U 02056A   02348.25082623 -.00000044  00000-0  00000+0 0    10
    2 27597  98.6883  57.5925 0000624  86.6407 273.4844 14.25899261    32
    
    The solar panal on it is listed as 24 meters long, so it should be able to 
    be resolved when overhead or to a certain distance depending on the 
    resolution of your imaging system, or telescope. That's when it's in a dark 
    sky, since it's in Sun-synchronous orbit.
    
    Now to wait for the rocket's elements.
    
    There's also three small satellites as part of this launch.
    
    They are
    
    FedSat
    Whale Ecology Observation Satellite
    NASDA's Micro-LabSat spacecraft
