'Maven' is on its way to Mars. To get there, its second stage burned to place it in parking orbit, coasted half an hour, and lit again for five more
On the linked map, the burn occurred over the SW Indian Ocean between points labeled '2' and '3'. The same area, particularly the islands of
Mauritius and Reunion, experienced a thrilling 'UFO overflight six weeks ago when the SpaceX Falcon-9 second stage dumped fuel.
I wonder if anybody down thataway saw anything this time?
