    Using SKYMAP and a trajectory file created from STS-88 (posted previously on
    SeeSat at: ), I've plotted the
    STS-106 launch trajectory as viewed from a few East-Coast cities as examples. 
    Plots assume launch at 8:45:28am EDT (12:45:28GMT) September 8, 2000.
    For Washington D.C. go to:
    For Savannah, GA, go to:
    For Charleston, SC, go to:
    For a plot of a typical Shuttle-ISS launch relative to the East Coast, see a
    plot at:
    I'd be glad to plot the trajectory for SeeSaters if you send me a direct E-mail
    to,  giving your station coordinates (and time-zone if
    other than EDT, -4 from UT).
