    Cees Bassa has reported new observations of the Centaur. Added to mine of yesterday, they yield:

    The true decay term probably is not zero, so expect it at least a few seconds early after 15 rev.
    
    Greg and I continue to doubt that his UNID of Dec 6 UTC (that was close to the track of this TLE, but about 77 s
    earlier) was of the Centaur. That would probably make it one of the cubesats, even though it seemed far too bright.
