    Hi all,
    
    Now that we know the actual launch time, here is my guess at the TLE for orbit 
    1, after the OMS-2 burn :
    
    STS-107
    1 27650U 03003  A 03016.64520000  .00599256 +25000-5 +97131-3   00014
    2 27650 039.0238 229.0020 0013225 082.2063 277.9203 16.02230130000010
    
    Note that cat. no and international ID are fake. I'm looking forward to 
    comparing this TLE with the actual orbit after launch.
    
    For observers like me at northern latitudes, the mission won't be observable 
    because the passes will be in daylight in the afternoon :-(
