    I think I did these correct. It has been a long cloudy spell and tonight
    little time was available for observations. I show  #11732 late by 8 seconds
    and # 11745 late by 17 seconds on the following elements.

    I also saw Vanguard 2 / #00011 starting at a 5.7 mag star 7 degrees under
    gamma pegasus at 01.28.27UT and followed to shadow. Vanguard 2 is the 2nd
    listing in the alldat.tle file. I still need to see Vanguard 1 / #00005, the
    first satellite listed.
    A cool 0 C with snow on ground.
