    And it's still in orbit according to Too bad it's never bright enough to see without optical aids (max brightness is mag 6.5).
    Its original orbit was from 700.9 x 753.62 km (or 692 x 740km, depending on your source), and it's current orbit is 638 x 673 km. It sure hasn't decayed much in 50 years.

    That of course, should be 50 years.
    I shouldn't post messages, when I am tired.
