This is near perigee on a northbound pass.

OIG (SpaceCom) has now add 1993-017D (22584) PAM-D (NAVSTAR 31 R/B) on the
agenda and their prediction - prepared Feb 04, 06:09 UTC - is:
               Feb 11, 05:45 UTC +/- 04 days  (33.6S, 176.0E)
MPM and other indicators suggest with the ELSET 99035.039... a significant
earlier decay:   
               Feb 09, 19:05 UTC +/- 12 hours
But it is too early for a definite conclusion.
