Lighthouse in Noordwijk, in honor of Andre's launch
(notice the soyuz projected on it)

Nice touch! That is where ESTEC resides.

Realigned the thread for docking coverage.

NTV docking coverage begins at 8:45am Central.

Docking coverage has started. nevermind, it was pre-recorded footage. I got confused by the wrong docking time advertised on the page 17 of this thread, here http://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=25257.msg842171#msg842171

I'm confused.  I thought I saw it documented upside down and sideways that docking was supposed to be happening right now, Friday at 8:45am ET (13:45 GMT), not tomorrow as just stated on NTV.  Did something change?  It seems like they delayed it one day, but I see no mention here of it ...

EDIT:  I now see a 15:23 GMT docking time stated in several sources.  Still don't know why it changed.  The commentary on NASA TV right now is a REPEAT of yesterday's daily ISS hour.  Hence the confusing references to docking tomorrow.  The NASA TV schedule does indeed show docking coverage starting at 9:45am ET, thanks Mapperuo.

Either way, I'll be glad to see it get docked, as we've just had another Soyuz launch failure ...

PSA #1: EST does NOT mean "Eastern Time".  Use "Eastern" or "ET" instead, all year round, and avoid this common error.  Google "EST vs EDT".
PSA #2: It's and its: know the difference and quietly impress grammar pedants.  Google "angry flower its" .  *** See profile for two more NSF forum tips. ***
