    According to this document, the second burn is scheduled at T+1576 s, about
    26m16s after launch:
    Based on my estimated elements, it will occur over approximately 38 N, 105 W.
    Visibility would require a launch delay of many hours. As I write, Spaceflight
    Now reports the countdown is at T-22 min, and counting.
