This is a *VERY APPROXIMATE* elset for launch at 23:11 UT tonight:

CSG-2                           for launch on 30 Jan 2022 23:11:00 UT
1 70000U 22999A   22030.96597222  .00000000  00000-0  00000-0 0    00
2 70000 097.8200 217.1500 0001429 163.2308 326.3389 14.82323629    09

This elset lines up with the post-dogleg Navigational Warning Area C between 
Cuba and the Bahama's, and the upper stage deorbit area in the Pacific.

Allow a leeway of several minutes in pass time and some cross-track error.

The launch vehicle makes a dogleg after launch to avoid overflying Florida: next 
the upper stage coasts for an hour before a brief 3-second engine restart near 
the ascending node and payload release after shutdown.
