    That I can understand. Just one question ?
    
    If I wish to assist in observations I use the TLE in Orbitron and get 
    the following prediction:

    Lacrosse 5 r is an understandable 7 min pass. but dsp f19 is a squigly 
    pass taking 4 hours with a peculiar track.
    Is the TLE incomplete still and should I not even bother, being a rank 
    amateur, or are there any short indications when I can start looking ?
    Ps I do not wish to waste the professionals time with lengthy 
    explanations, if so I am quite happy trying see lacrosse 5 r
    
    I may quote:
    
    During our crossing, Einstein explained his theory to me every day, and 
    by the time we arrived I was fully convinced he understood it. Chaim
