Audio feed from NASA confirms that the HST aperture door was closed at =
approx 11:30U on 2/12/97.  The high gain antennas will be retracted at =
approx 18:30U on 2/12/97.  It might be interesting to see if the =
brilliant flare that Robert Reeves referenced is still visible now that =
the aperture door is closed.

The aperture door will remain closed until just before release by =
Discovery next week.
