    I observed at about 10 deg elevation, using star pairs 1.6 deg and 1.8 deg
    apart, so the resulting points are suitable only for adjusting mean anomaly and
    mean motion. The object was about 1.3 s late relative my epoch 05041.25519593
    elset. I saw A, apparently about on-time, but failed to make any measurements.

    The following assumes that no manoeuvre occurred during the arc. I expect a
    manoeuvre to near 13.406 rev/d at any time.
