    Observers at the Gulf Coast who don't mind getting up early tomorrow morning 
    (12-NOV-08) might be able to see a flare from the HST Aft-Shroud while the 
    HST is pointing at HD 38529. Here are the times (UTC, 12-NOV-08) and 
    coordinates (Latitude, Longitude) for the flare (starting from the Mexican 
    Pacific coast):
    
    	11:43  (25.23, -106.77)
    	11:44  (26.63, -102.73)
    	11:45  (27.94, -98.58)
    	11:46  (29.17, -94.33)
    	11:47  (30.29, -89.95)
    	11:48  (31.31, -85.45)
    
    Note that at 11:47 the flare would be visible right from New Orleans (at 
    azimuth 198 and elevation 42 deg.). Once past the Lousiana/Florida border the 
    sky is probably too bright already.
    
    I have no idea how bright the flare gets but I guess that within 20 km or so 
    of the central line it should be very visible. Observational reports would be 
    appreciated.
