    That can't be correct..
    
    Look at the time stated in the link Kevin posted.. 3day countdown timer,
    does not equal tomorrow.. More Like Saturday..
    
    But I do see the TLE.. I'll just wait until those better than I find it..
    Then I'll help..

    PS.. Having a horrible time drift aligning in latitude.. Can't even get the
    direction of the drift to change.. I was a LONG way off.. I am starting to
    think it was more Earthquake, than wind..

    According to Twitter (@NanoSailD):
    
    Big day tomorrow. Just about 24hrs before I open up my sail around 10pm EST.
    Stay tuned ...
