    Hi all,
    Following yesterdays great launch it looks like I have a low elevation solar 
    transit this afternoon just a few miles away.
    Quick question ,......does anyone know how much the orbit of Atlantis is 
    likely to change in the next 12 hours ?
    Catching it on the disk is going to be pretty tricky using a small 
    FOV....and the target is only 12 arc secs , so pinpoint accuracy will be 
    BTW at you 
    can hear a few seconds of UHF downlink from the orbiter , which I fed live 
    into my recording of NASA TV ( digital satellite feed )
    First you hear the UHF call direct...which then pops up on NASA tv a second 
    or so later.
