    Object: #26105 = 00- 13 F = Express 2A aux motor
    
    Decay predictions:
       SpaceCom: Sep  3 02:04 +-2d        47.0 N   106.2 W
       SatEvo:   Sep  2 11:04 +-20h

    This object is called "Express 6-A aux motor" in my SatEvo decay list
    after an earlier name (based on its orbital slot) used for the payload.
    The prediction is very uncertain. It enters eclipse while northbound
    near 41 deg N in the evening and leaves eclipse near the equator while
    southbound at ~02:00 local time.
