    Hi all,
    
    Here is a list of all manoeuvres performed by the Shuttle on mission STS-109 up
    to the moment of capture with predicted dates and times in UTC followed by all
    the elsets associated with them. They are valid for a launch at 11:48:14 UTC on
    Feb. 28
    
    With these elsets and the one for Hubble (also included) you will be able to
    make your own predictions for Shuttle visibility and distance from Hubble.
