I was plesantly surprised in Alabammy,
expecting only about 2 minutes, barely 11 degrees above the horizon...
and it just about still wasn't dark yet.    What's up with that ???

But, there she was - right on time. Got the full 2 minutes to watch.
And 11 degrees looks higher than I was expecting.
The crew got the S6 truss installed ok,
and they expect to get the new solar panels deployed tomorrow.!.
I'm sure they'll have the radio back on soon.

  Thanks  /;^)
