Hi all,

a user in the SpaceX sub-reddit made calculations suggesting that those in
Western Europe will be able to see the second stage + Dragon spacecraft
shortly after launch, for the upcoming launch currently planned NET June 1.
ISS is going to reach highest latitude over Europe, CRS-11 would be ~100km
lower.

See here:

I don't have the skills/tools to check his calculations, but it may be to
interest to some of you.

Best regards,
Ramon van der Hilst
