    We've done our figures on the back on a paper plate (yes really) - we
    believe that it will become illuminated no later than 3:22UT at which
     point it will be 14,500km away.  We are hoping for a glint of the booster
    or (like Cassini) the seeing fuel dumping.
    Only one problem - we are in complete overcast at the moment (the radio
    telescopes are fine, but our eyes aren't)
