    All ISS launches from the Cape have essentially the same flight path, so
    far alt/az you can use any old set (for one of the initial orbits)
    Or you can use SkyMap rocket trajectory with a previously published .trj
    file - just set the correct launch time.
    
    For siderial predictions, adjust the old elset Epoch by the diff in
    launch date/time, and the RAAN by the difference in siderial time of
    launches.
