    Note: This enters eclipse while southbound near 40 deg N at ~03:00
    local time. Eclipse exit occurs a few minutes later,  southbound near
    25 deg S at ~05:00 local time - though check your local circumstances
    since these locations are changing quite quickly as the orbit 
    precedes.
