    My simulation shows the following:
    
    Start of burn - 18 May 16:54:39.640 UTC:
      Latitude -0.6, Longitude -14.47
    
    End of burn - 17:05:42.516 (duration 11:02.876):
      Latitude 32.67, Longitude 13.10 (over Tripoli, Libya)
    
    Unfortunately, at the end of burn, it'll still be some 10 on the daylight side
    of the terminator.  It may then be visible from Israel, for example, but it'd be
    at quite a low angle of elevation.
