    Apologies for the inaccuracies in this email, it was written in some haste 
    and I did not have an opportunity to correct them till now.
    I was of course referring to that afternoon our time.  Also longitude should 
    be 174.948E
    
    Nothing seen and we still don't know where and when this decayed!
