    Yes , I think this will be touch and go for me too with the pair passing 
    over my location about 20 mins before sunset on the 13th.
    
    As a matter of interest , how long is the launch campaign ( in days ) ? 
    ....I know each launch window is about 5 minutes , but if weather problems 
    arise , how long can they delay before running out of launch options , ten 
    days or so ?
    
    Thanks ,
    
    John
