    Most accurate point is the last one cause it passed very near of a star.
    About 3 seconds early. Could be because a not-well sync clock?

    Most accurate the last one too.

    This Iridium satellite is out of service, and its reported tumbling. Today
    i saw a long flare of about 6 seconds, this says me that is not tumbling
    very fast. The question is: Assuming that if its not tumbling its possible
    to re-calcule the orientation of the main mission antennas and make
    predictable?
