    With the MECO state vector now published by JSC for a shuttle launch at 
    23:39:35 UTC, 11-JUL-09 some lucky people in Ireland, Southern England, 
    Central and Southeast Europe might be able to see a transit of the shuttle 
    and/or the External Tank in front of the Moon shortly after midnight UTC, 
    Too bad they don't launch a day earlier. This would have seen the goundtrack 
    of the Moon transit pass very close to my place. Now it's 60 km south from 
    here. I might try a moonlit pass observation though.
