If this is still the case(is it?), then the shuttle launch should
be visible from the East Coast of the United States.
[ Hint: night launch + high inclination = possibly visible ]
And, for a change, it's at a decent hour!!

Would anyone in or near the New Jersey area be
interested in getting together to watch the launch?
