The latest OIG elset is:
Centaur r                                        5114 x 103 km
1 24666U 96067B   97095.54494955  .78843871 -15579-4  42396-2 0  2040
2 24666  23.7056 126.1317 2787764 301.2112  35.0271 10.19096817  3688
showing it running 65 seconds early with respect to yesterday's SatEvo
prediction. 

I still anticipate decay at about April 7.1 and predict the following
elsets:
Centaur r                                        4076 x 99 km
