    Predicted time for the middle of the launch window for STS-111, based 
    on the most recent ISS element set:
    
    October 3 21:19 GMT
    
    Local sunset will around 18:45 GMT so Atlantis will be in shadow as it 
    crosses the UK. A further delay of 4+ days will result in a visible pass 
    about 20 minutes after lift-off.
