    1998-012A (#25233) SNOE
    SNOE means "Students Nitric Oxid Explorer" was a small but very valuable atmospheric research satellite, with a mass of 117 kg.
    I am assisting now the reentry team to follow the decay and the
    reentry of the - at this time - full stabilized object.
    My forecast - in general agreement also with Alan Pickups  
    prediction -delivers:
    13 December,14:45 UTC +/- 10 hours (52.5N, 203.6E)
    descending over the Pacific south of the Aleutian Islands.
    I will update my predictions daily and starting 4 days before
    decay more frequently.
