Randy John gave me the launch azimuth 205 degrees, and with simple
trigonometry the TRaJectory may look like:

  0 34.73 -120.60    0   
 10 34.72 -120.60    1.3 
 20 34.72 -120.60    5.2 
 30 34.71 -120.61   11.5
 40 34.69 -120.62   20.1
 50 34.65 -120.64   30.9
 60 34.59 -120.67   43.6
 70 34.52 -120.72   57.8
 80 34.42 -120.77   73.2
 90 34.30 -120.84   89.4
100 34.15 -120.92  106
110 33.97 -121.02  122.5
120 33.77 -121.14  138.4

Randy asked how it was constructed - a simple Excel 5.0 spreadsheet,
which I mailed to him. But his return address (RJ@Rmatsc.Riem.Com)
has bounced before - I will also try rj@ms.riem.com which has worked.
