    I hope that all went well. 
    
    In the meantime, I have found that your 0700503 of Apr 4 UTC and your 0700513 of
    Apr 6 UTC may be 07005C, the rocket body. Here are approximate elements:
    
    1 70003U          07096.96828996  .00007117  00000-0  15000-3 0    07
    2 70003  97.2100 218.4251 0075128 334.9282  24.8324 15.42178602    07
    Arc 2007 Apr 04.97 - 06.98, WRMS residuals = 0.006 deg
    
    Your 0700503 of Apr 05 UTC appears to be a different object than your 0700503 of
    Apr 04 UTC.
