    I wasn't going to post to the list on the good opportunities we have until 
    the shuttle was launched, in case it is delayed, but seeing the subject has 
    come up:
    
    For Sydney, assuming no manoeuvres and no delays the pass is from 1934 to 
    1941 UTC.  We also have that pass here commencing 1937 UTC and ending 1946, 
    though that may be a little late for good visibility. At only half an hour 
    or so before docking they should be very close and moving into final docking 
    position.
    
    The previous pass at 1802 is more  promising for us in terms of visibility.
    
    Also of interest is that undocking is scheduled for 1616 UTC on 17 June. and 
    we have a pass at 1835, though at this location it will not be good pass 
    with a maximum elevation of 11 degrees so I am only likely to catch a 
    glimpse.
    
    I will review this if launch is delayed.
    
    Here's hoping for clear skies!
