SpaceCom has issued an early decay notice for #25625, the Globalstar 36
Soyuz rocket. This is not best placed for most of us; it enters eclipse
while southbound at 2 deg S latitude at about 19:00 local time and
leaves eclipse while northbound near 30 deg S at 05:30 local time.

I have just updated my Decay Watch page at

but will not be able to maintain my updates for this during the coming
week while I am away in Bulgaria (hoping) to observe the solar eclipse
