    Hi list and particularly the European observers,
    
    The one-day delay for the launch of STS-127 has not changed the visibility
    opportunities. The pass over Europe with the external tank won't be visible
    because they enter shadow at around 21:08:45 UTC just before they reach over
    UK.
    
    Pass from the southern tip of Ireland to Turkey is to take place from 21:11
    to 21:18, all in shadow.
    
    Here is the revised TLE based on new NASA vector data :
    STS-127 MECO
    1 00127U 09037A    9194.96015514  .01000000  63908-2  70000-3 0    16
