An attempt is made tonight, at 22:54 UT, to launch the Boeing CST-100 Starliner 
OFT-2 towards the ISS, from pad 41 at Cape Canaveral.

This elset, which assumes a circularization once at orbital altitude, should be 
good for the first 1 or 2 revolutions:


STARLINER OFT-2              for launch on 19 May 2022 at 22:54:00 UT
1 70000U 22999A   22139.95416667  .00000000  00000-0  00000-0 0    02
2 70000 051.6200 116.6787 0000762 242.4984 131.6463 16.34490693    06


Unfortunately, the first revolution pass over Europe appears to be fully in 
earth shadow - so not visible.

Observers in/around Greece might perhaps see the deorbit burn of the Centaur 
upper stage near 23:20 UT (02:20 am local Greek time).
