SatEvo decay list #25  (issued 1997 February 16)

Here are updated SatEvo decay analyses and predictions. Again, 
the "Actual?" decay dates are estimates based on the final 
available elements. Pegasus debris are included only if I predict 
their decay before mid-March; other objects are included to 
mid-April.

Notes:

1. #24658 = 86- 17 LW was listed incorrectly as #23658 last time.

2. #23894 is identified incorrectly as 96- 29 KM in the latest NASA
60-Day Decay Forecast.
