SatEvo decay list #48  (issued 1998 February 22)

Here follows another batch of decay predictions and analyses of 
recent decays. The "Actual?" decay dates are estimates based on 
the final available elements. Pegasus debris are included if I 
predict their decay by March 31. Other objects should be 
complete to April 30 but I include a few larger and/or more 
interesting objects beyond that date.

This and other recent decay lists are available on the WWW via 
my SatEvo page at
               http://www.wingar.demon.co.uk/satevo/
In addition you can find current elsets (auto-updated every three 
hours or so) for the still-to-decay objects below, together with
other objects of interest, including Mir, all of the Iridiums and 
recently launched/catalogued objects. These elset files are 
mirrored for anonymous FTP access from
        ftp://ftp.satellite.eu.org/pub/sat/mirrors/pickup/
