    Tristan,
    
    I am not very familiar with these data. Until now I understood that Soyuz
    landings
    always happened, while the "space ship" was travelling in the ascending
    branch,
    meaning travelling to the point with highest northern latitude.
    
    If this is true than 0501GMT looks unlikely to me and 0300UTC would be more
    likely.
    But as I already said, I am not quite sure about this.
    
    If it were 0501GMT there might be a chance we may see Soyuz TM34 in its last
    and
    already lowering pass to its landing point.
    
    Regards.. Bram.
