    Using elsets 29, 31 and 33 available from OIG at 19:30 UTC today, I seemed
    to have very consistent predictions for a near-zenith pass. Using Alan's
    SatAna and SatEvo I got predictions 2-5 minutes earlier than the elsets
    used, but about 28 minutes earlier than old predictions.
    
    Unfortunately I had too many clouds to provide a gap at the right place and
    time.
    
    In case Alan is not available to provide updates, here is my shot at
    evolution:
