    On Oct 26 between 0:38 to 0:53 UTC, a delta 2 rocket will lift off, with 2 spacecraft going into
    orbit around the sun. They will use the moon, to adjust there trajectory, so that one spacecraft
    ends up leading the earth, and the other following the earth, as earth orbits the sun.
    
    The spacecraft are called stereo
