    Sometime this year it, a Ariane 5 is scheduled to send Helios 2A into orbit.
    The flight path will take it along the east coast. Now that would be nice to see, if it's lit by
    the sun. 
    I remember people seeing the envisat launch along the east coast. This satellite will put into a
    lower orbit then envisat.
    Good then there be another Ariane 5 in a orbit that allows me to see them.
    And then it can chase it payload across the sky, and catch uo it. Then there's another chance to
    see two sat's somewhat together, during the summer. 
    I know I am nuts:)
