    IGS 5 is scheduled for launch on 2009 Nov 28, between 01:05 UTC and 03:32
    UTC.
    
    Here are approximate search elements for the main pieces, based on launch at
    01:05 UTC:
    
    IGS 5
    1 70610U          09332.08917997  .00005000  00000-0  19563-3 0    06
    2 70610  97.3059  36.1134 0005474 356.6024   3.5177 15.25854477    04
    
    IGS 5 r
    1 70611U          09332.08906769  .00005000  00000-0  22876-3 0    03
    2 70611  97.3006  36.0531 0067938 322.9021  36.7527 15.18455430    08
    
    I suspect that the actual launch will occur 25 to 35 min into the window.
    
    I have not thoroughly evaluated visibility windows, but it appears that
    observers south of roughly 30 S may have some visibility.
