    The latest USSTRATCOM (appended) and Alan Pickup predictions (URL below) are for
    decay today near 18:15 UTC, on a descending track that passes over Western
    Australia.

    I am prepared to assist subscribers in the region who may need assistance with
    custom predictions. Please contact me directly instead of posting to the list.
