    Greg Roberts and Peter Wakelin contributed observations used to determine one or more of the
    following element sets.
    
    The mean motion of SDS 3-3 is uncertain:
    
    SDS 3-3                                                827 X 39521 km
    1 28384U 04034A   10216.91750699  .00000000  00000-0  00000-0 0    05
    2 28384  63.9178 292.5602 7286445 272.6764  13.9713  2.00642540    04
    Arc 20100804.96-0804.97 WRMS resid 0.010 totl 0.006 xtrk
    
    PAN manoeuvred last week, and Peter recovered it last night. If it was synchronous last night, then
    these are its approximate elements:
    
    PAN                                                  35770 X 35804 km
    1 35815U 09047A   10216.65978735  .00000000  00000-0  00000-0 0    05
    2 35815   0.0600 237.9044 0004000 255.8328  94.9117  1.00273500    05
    Arc 20100804.9-0804.95 WRMS resid 0.015 totl 0.014 xtrk
    
    If it was drifting last night, and also on July 28, when Greg observed it, then I suggest using
    these elements:
    
    PAN                                                  35732 X 35799 km
