    32269 2007-049-B Cosmos 2430 Rocket Part 1 is getting close to decay and it 
    appears likely to re-enter around Thursday afternoon UTC.
    
    In general we don't have very good passes here but we have an unlit pass at 
    1302 UTC which could be very close to time of decay.   Weather prospects are 
    poor with cloud and/or rain forecast for the next few days (we have had a 
    very good spell of observing weather till now but I have taken little 
    advantage of it owing to the late nights and early mornings which would have 
    been involved being summer down here.)
    
    Australian observers may wish to lose a little sleep to check for a decay 
    because the next (also not illuminated) pass travels over Australia,
