    03009A was 18.7 s late, and 1.3 deg off-track, relative 17.3 day old elements.
    It nearly missed my FOV; I was fortunate to obtain a single rough position. The
    large track error appears to be the result of a manoeuvre within the past few
    weeks to correct the inclination for the effects of solar gravity. Here are
    approximate elements:

    Arc 2008 Aug 08.90 - 26.15, WRMS residuals = 0.129 deg
