    Anyone able to guess an approximate elset based on these NOTAM info:
    
    http://www.globalsecurity.org/space/library/news/2009/space-090312-imo01.htm
    
    ...and the quoted info from Igor Lissov:
    
    > Launch time -- 02:20 UTC
    > Separation time -- 02:29:02 UTC
    > Orbit: 40.6 deg, 490 x 1426 km, 104.2 min 
    
    ...so we can try to see whether anything is there or not?
