Fregat burn should be underway by now.

No word on Spaceflightnow yet...

EDIT: cross posting with you Emily. I feel your pain, I don't know how much more page reloads my computer (and me) can take!

From Spaceflightnow.com

0514 GMT (12:14 a.m. EST)

T+plus 1 hour, 41 minutes. By this point in the flight the Fregat should have completed its burn and then released Venus Express. We're awaiting confirmation from ESA that these events have occurred successfully.
