    That's what I was thinking too, though my rough guess was for the pass 
    to start a few minutes earlier.  However, by 0730ish will it not be too 
    light to have much chance of seeing anything?  I got up about that time
    this morning and the sky was fairly light.
    
    I think, if the launch is delayed for a few days then presumably it
    will happen a bit earlier in the day in which case there might be a 
    chance of seeing it.  Is that right?
