    Cees Bassa, Russell Eberst, Kevin Fetter, Alberto Rango, Greg Roberts and Scott Tilley, contributed observations used to
    update the following elements.
    
    Russell reported an observation of what he suspected is 80019C or D. The latter appears to fit best. This is only the
    second observation of this object in the past two years. Cees rediscovered it on 2012 May 12 UTC, and I used his
    observations in this analysis. Prediction time uncertainty is about 1 min per 14 revs from epoch.

    ORS 1 has been manoeuvring to maintain altitude, so the present decay term is likely to be inaccurate for long-term
    predictions.
