If I had paid attention in physics classes it would not have been necessary to look up the meaning of Kepler's Law, which relates to the planets orbiting the sun, but what I do know is that it is as sure as night following day that there will be more to come from the master of Heath House in the coming weeks.

But even though they aren't supposed to be officially "there," the basic laws of physics still apply--in this case, Kepler's laws of planetary motion--which means that I can model a particular spacecraft's orbit from just two reliable observations and so can accurately predict when and where it will appear in the night sky.
