  • Next message: Ted Molczan: "RE: Decay Alert Tonight for South Africa - revised"

    USSTRATCOM now predicts decay on 2004 Dec 28 at 21:58 UTC, northbound over 31.2
    N, 153.3 W.
    
    I have appended the predicted final ground track, followed by USSTRATCOM's
    report, which includes the latest elements.
