    Does anyone have a formula (other than star charting software) for
    calculating a geosat's apparent altitude given its final parking longitude?
    
    For instance tonight's DirecTV launch is destined for 101 degrees West.
    Will this be visible for me?  Obviously it'll be to the southwest for me in
    the geo ring but how high?  Also curious to know what the "limiting
    longitudes" are for my location.
    
    Thanks,
    Bill
