     After viewing a spectacular launch Thursday morning, the eyes of
South Floridians will be turning skyward (weather permitting) for pre-dawn
passes of Discovery during the rest of the flight.  These predicts for
the Fort Lauderdale area were produced using Dave Ransom's STSPLUS program
with post-OMS 4 TLEs supplied by Dave Ransom.  Orbiter telemetry data
provided by Rockwell/Downey Mission Support Room were converted to TLEs
utilizing Ken Ernandes's fabulous VEC2TLE utility (how's that for high
density plugs -- all well-deserved).

     P.S.  Some list members, such as myself, read E-mail from sources
           which strip message headers, so we don't necessarily know who
           the original author of the message is UNLESS YOU INCLUDE A
           SIGNATURE IN THE MESSAGE TEXT.   Thanks in advance for your
           consideration.
