Re : MIR orbit....


In my experience, you can never trust OIG/SPACECOM orbit numbers.
Sometimes, they make a jump of one or two orbits, sometimes they
restart at an arbitrary (?) number, or pick some other object's orbit  =20
no.(?)

I tried in my decay predictions to create a function fit of
asc.node time(orbit no.), and often had to adjust to avoid
unreasonable values.
