    Hi everybody,
    I would like to know if there is any chance to see the pass of the
    Shuttle during the ascent phase from my location (Cadiz, Spain -
    W6.2990  N36.5340  Alt. 7m.). I saw the NASA documentary "Space Shuttle:
    A Remarkable Flying Machine", in which it was explained that during a
    launch (and before the main engines cut-off), the orbiter passes over
    the zenith of Rota, a town nearby the city of Cadiz, so I wonder if the
    light from main engines burning would be visible from here.
    In other things, I would be grateful if any of you give me information
    on how to obtain TLE's from the flight of Apollo-7.
    Thank you!
