Re: TLE with future epoch

I trust SpaceTrack to use accurate propagation methods to arrive at the
next ascending node and produce a TLE .
But once used in cheap prediction programs, the position of the high
altitude object many days from the epoch is unreliable because of
gravitational effects from Sun and moon. Maybe Mike's int2 and int3
programs can remedy this to considerable extent?

It would b interesting to hear a comment on the accuracy of the TLE for the
long period orbits that are mentioned in this discussion.
