All bets are off on the decay of Cosmos 2335. It has manoeuvred at least
once during the past day and the current elset...

Cosmos 2335      6.0  0.0  0.0  4.2 v            405 x 225 km
1 24670U 96069A   98344.78577024  .00173903  17075-4  34242-3 0   948
2 24670  65.0310 350.9249 0134549 271.7218  86.8522 15.85492409113184

... has it more than two minutes late against the SatEvo prediction I
posted yesterday. Given this, there is little point in making further
predictions at present.

I include the current elset (updated hourly) for Cosmos 2335 in the
select.tle and dklist.tle files available via my SatEvo WWW page. I also
now publish single-object tle files for Mir, the International Space
Station and the Shuttle (as mir.tle, iss.tle and sts.tle), also updated
every hour from OIG's database. When downloading/reading any of these
files, you may need to select "Refresh" (or its equivalent) in your
browser to yield the latest version rather than a cached copy.
