    The 5 satellite THEMIS  constellation is due for launch from Cape Canaveral 
    on a Delta 2 rocket in the 7925 configuration between 2303 and 2325 UTC.
    
    The stage 2 restart, SECO-2 AND stage 3 start all take place northeast of 
    Australia's Northern Territory (in daylight.)  S2 restart is at T plus 
    64:19.4.
    
    Detailed specifications of the craft and instruments can be found at

    Launch will be broadcast on NASA-TV.
    
    Though concern over ground wind speeds has been reported, the probability of 
    constraints being exceeded is 20 percent, but it is only 10 percent on 
    Saturday UTC - Saturday window is 2301 to 2319 UTC.
