    Tonight an Ariane 5 rocket will attempt to launch, with the canadian Anik F2 satellite:) 
    
    It's a big boy:) The satellite is a Boeing 702 series, and spans 48 m across ( 157 ft )
    
    Specs on it

    It will be parked at 111 degrees West, so still high in the sky for my location in ontario.
    
    It can be viewed on the internet at
