    I was a little surprised by the 32-minute unplanned hold due to the
    vehicle near the launch sites. Don't polar launches usually have very
    narrow launch windows of no more than a few minutes?
    Does this suggest that the launch might have been into a lower
    inclination orbit, one with a wider launch window?
    Can anyone determine the launch azimuth from the launch photography?
    It was overcast here in San Diego so I wasn't able to see it.
