I've been collecting these things for some time now.  Here is the list:

Launch site			Lat	Long	   Elev	  TZ

Woomera Australia             -31.08    -136.49     167  -9.5

Yavne                          31.5      -34.4
Hammaguir                      30.8        3.3

Can anybody help me fill in the holes?  For instance, I only have one entry
for Cape Caneveral, I should probably have several.  I'm also missing elevation
and time zone for several of them.
