GOLD Launch Tomorrow

Just a heads up.  There is a launch scheduled for 25 January 2018 of an Arianespace Ariane 5 ECA rocket from French Guiana.

The launch window opens at 22:20 UTC / 17:20 EST.  I hope to provide a link so check back and of course replays afterwards. Note: coverage begins at 22:00 and launch window opens at 22:20.

This launch should be of interest to Amateur Radio operators.  The Global-scale Observations of the Limb and Disk, or GOLD, mission will explore in unprecedented detail our near-space environment, which is home to astronauts, radio signals used to guide airplanes and ships, and satellites that provide communications and GPS systems.
