4:55 Saturday morning - early dawn rocket launch
I got this earlier from a friend who works for NASA. Should be pretty cool in the very early morning hour.
The SpaceX demonstration mission to the ISS on schedule to launch Saturday morning May 19th at 4:55am Eastern Standard Time. My Florida peeps, this is history and worth getting up for. This mission if successful will be the first commercial spaceflight to dock with another space vehicle.
For my Houston friends, at 5:31 a.m. The Dragon spacecraft will fly over Houston near the end of its first orbit.
Get up early and you can watch the Space Station fly over at 5:15 followed by the Dragon at 5:31. This is history. Don't miss it. Here are the coordinates:
ISS - 28 degrees above WSW to 24 degrees above NNE with a max elevation of 54 degrees.
Dragon - 18 degrees above W to 12 degrees NNE with a max elevation of 28 degrees.
12 K1600 GTL
02 K1200 LT (gone but not forgotten)
