    Subject: [IOTAoccultations] Phobos-Soil ephemeris extended on JPL Horizons
    Disregard my comments about limitations on the end time for input on the JPL
    Horizons Web site for the Phobos-Soil spacecraft given in my last message;
    topocentric ephemerides can now be generated for many days after launch.

    Disregard this request, it is no longer necessary. Boris pointed me to
    "phsrm_111109_111109_120910_nom3.bsp", which extends the trajectory
    prediction to 2012 and Mars arrival.
    The extension was just installed in Horizons.
