It has already gone 2.30pm on the 18th in civilisation so I suspect it will not happen until tomorrow

I just checked - it is something like 7am AEDT on the 19th I doubt I will remember but if I do I will look on YouTube but someone will record it.

It takes the signal between 4 and 24 minutes to get from Mars to Earth depending where they are so it will be late anyway
