    2002-029E (#27447) Auxiliary Motor
    
    SCC'S FINAL REPORT - prepared Aug 24, 19:43 UTC - predicts
    the decay on
    24 August, 15:59 UTC +/- 03 hours (12.4N, 212.3E)
    descending over the Pacific.
    
    MPM+REENTRY delivers with the ELSETs 03236.390...+ 03236.453...
    and SFX 116, ap 040 the decay on
    24 August, 12:31 UTC +/- 17 minutes (15.71N, 113.96E)
    ascending over the South Chinese Sea.
    
    SCC had some problems with this decayer. They issued the
    the following 02 HOURS BEFORE DECAY prediction:
    24 August, 10:56 UTC +/- 35 minutes (01.3S, 121.0E). 
    
    Their last released ELSET with an epoch around 10:53 UTC
    appeared in 4 different versions! I see no reason and backed
    by observations from SCC that the decayer survived till 
    15:59 UTC.
