    Hi:
    
    Could someone suggest a Website that can tell me the azimuth of the launch 
    site as seen from Miami, Florida? I am at
     25.6554N, 80.3503W
    
    I would like to use my planetarium software to synchronize on a known star, 
    and then SLEW my camera/telescope to the predicted azimuth and maximum 
    altitude of the ascent as seen from my location.
    
    Thank you.
    
    Adam
