OIG (SpaceCom) have released last night (UTC) two decay announcements related
to the CIS GLONASS launch (1998-77 A...). I am sure Alan Pickup will comment 
this extensively.
1996-069A (24670) Cosmos 2235:
OIG (SpaceCom) have prepared (12:58 UTC) a new decay forecast at
                         Jan 01, 01:16 UTC +/- 08 hours
With the last two ELSETs (98365.2737... and 98365.5186...) MPM shows again a 
decay at                 Dec 31, 22:40 UTC +/- 03 hours
The SPG4 analytical method suggests now a tendency to a little later decay.


Happy New Year
