    It's all in the TLEs...
    
    The predictions I gave were from a program run yesterday, using TLEs from:
    
    http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/realdata/sightings/SSapplications/Post/JavaSSOP/
    orbit/ISS/SVPOST.html
    
    The applicable one would seem to be:
    
    1 25544U 98067A   03100.46417216  .00041100  00000-0  34010-3 0  9037
    2 25544  51.6349    .3690 0002352 327.0588  33.0419 15.57955520 10345
    
    However, since yesterday the TLEs given on that page already have changed
    somewhat:
    
    1 25544U 98067A   03100.52833222  .00041100  00000-0  34010-3 0  9011
    2 25544  51.6350    .0481 0006442   6.4012 353.7224 15.57980181 10455
    
    Hopefully the sky will be clear in South Bend tonight, so one (or more) of
    us can fire up our debuggers tomorrow.
    
    My principal email server doesn't seem to be serving right now, but I was
    able to read the messages online.
