    The Centaur burn for 3 minutes at 22000 miles and the residual fuel and oxidizer
    dump after payload separation should be visible as two naked-eye "comets" about
    6+ hours after launch from the entire western hemisphere since this will occur
    over the equator at longitude 90 west.
    
    I will post a predicted tle after launch.
