*Suggestion: Should there be a dedicated launch coverage thread?
Uncanny -- that's *exactly* what I logged in to say (prompted by the same launch.) I guess it's that spaceflightnow.com's coverage that leads to watching more launches.
Edit: speaking for myself only, of course; I'd have missed a lot of recent launches if I hadn't noticed them coming up on that site. Not untypically, Arianespace has an email alert system which manages to be less than perfectly helpful in catching A5 launches... unless it's just me of course *)
