Hi! I was running simulation of todays docking of Mir and Soyuz,
using STSPlus. I suspect that the TLEs I am using for Mir Complex are
very old, because the simulation was showing Mir and Soyuz too far
away from each other!!
  Here are the TLEs I am using for Mir and Soyuz:

MIR Complex     32.7  4.2  0.0  1.6 v
1 16609U 86017A   97212.45485425  .00000675  00000-0  14668-4 0  4949
2 16609  51.6535 223.4744 0004187 331.1422  28.9309 15.59600174653936

Soyuz TM-26 232 x 188 km
1 24886U 97038A   97217.70368593 -.00003788  11978-4  00000-0 0    13
