    Jonathan (and others),
    
            Do you have a source for TLE's for the Mars Odyssey R/B? Using the satellite's catalog number, I checked H-A without any success for predictions of overhead passes. I also
    checked my data sources (Kelso, McCant and SATEVO elements) also without any success.
    
    Anthony.
