Decays tonight ?

As usual after a weekend, elsets for decaying objects are quite
unreliable. I observed 22808 and 23585 one minute early on Saturday,
and 23585 three minutes early. I generated approximate elsets and
ran them with my decay analysis programs, which indicated that :
#23585 may decay around midnight Aug.07-08 UT, and
#22808 may decay early Tuesday, Aug.08

If you can't get new elsets tonight, try the following - they
will give predictions about 10 minutes before Friday's elsets,
and at more realistic altitudes.

If you find fresh elsets, use both, to get an indication of
error margins.
