    The launch occurred at the planned time, and the orbit reported immediately after insertion, is
    within 0.5 km of the search elements I posted earlier:
    The objects have been catalogued as 2010-048A / 37168, and 2010-048B / 37169.
    I have not thoroughly evaluated visibility windows. Observers near 35 S and above ~50 N, appear to
    have a sporting chance of seeing the payload and the rocket, in evening. Prospective observers at
    other latitudes are encouraged to check their local visibility.
