Right now it should be near the apogee of, hopefully, its last orbit of the Earth.

It's sad to see how things changed from "it's on a Russian rocket, we'll get back to you when it reaches Mars" all the way to "It's on a Russian rocket, let's pray nothing goes wrong with the launch"...

I have nothing against the "Russian rocket" part, but you have to agree that this particular rocket has a life-long "problem" with payloads headed for Mars...

Does anyone happen to have any orbital elements or ephemeris information for the probe either pre or post-TMI? I'd very much like to track it with a scope.
