    The Sea Launch Commander and Odyssey Launch Platform have left port, and on there way to the
    launch site at 154 degrees west.
    
    I have been looking forward for a long time, to the Inmarsat-4 launch. It's my belief that it like
    milstar wil perform a main body flare, when the sun reaches 12 hours difference in R.A ie 180
    degrees.
    
    So now to wait for it to be send on it's way and park at 54 degreees West longitude.
    Then I see it my crazy thought is correct.
    
    Picture of it's main body

    Perfect size and suface material for reflecting lots of sunlight.
