    Great work Mike!
    I am surprised by the apparent altitude, which is about 20 km greater than that of the initial orbit of the previous
    NOSS 3 launches. The plane appears to be very close to the pre-launch estimate, which was simply the initial NOSS 3-2
    orbit, rotated to the circumstances of the NROL-34 launch.
