    Hello all,
    First, I would like to thank all the SeeSat-L orbital analysts, who have been
    quite busy lately, for their reply to my earlier question regarding the location
    on the CSL-04 orbit where its explosion took place.
    For me, and I'm sure for others on this list, it has been a good learning period
    for the last couple of weeks since we've had a few lessons about orbital mechanics
    with the explosion of the Chinese rocket stage and the soon-to-be-manoeuvred
    USA 129.
    About the 1999-057C explosion, there are now (Apr. 20, 02:00 UT) 172 debris
    catalogued with their elements published. I again loaded all these elements and
    generated 3 new maps of their orbits that you will find at :
