Question Question on Orbiter 2016 tutorial 6

When attempting to pick an orbit from the basesync MFD from which to do your deorbit, you keep looking and saying 'not that one, it will occur on the dark side'. How are you determining that it will be in the dark?

Thanks. Great series, BTW. I have been following along and really enjoying it. Thanks to the addon creators too.

Hi there. I was using the Map MFD to judge when daylight would fall over KSC. If sunset just occurred at KSC, then you can expect it will be ~8 orbits until sunrise comes around again.
