    Final elset:

    Note: The final elset has this 7 sec early against the prediction
    I posted yesterday. I estimate that this decayed southbound over
    the Atlantic to the W of the Canary Is on the following rev, given
    by the predicted elset:
    Cosmos 2399 Soyuz r                              121 x 110 km
