  • Next message: Robert Holdsworth: "tHEMIS launch"

    Alberto Rango's appended message was rejected because the list software is
    configured to reject very short messages, apparently on the theory that they are
    not real messages or incomplete or something. 
    
    Alberto was not at fault, since this is a rather obscure list behaviour. A
    suggested work-around when posting very short reports, may be to open with a
    statement on a separate line, like, "Here are my latest observations".
    
    Anyway, I am forwarding Alberto's message on his behalf:

    Alberto's observation is the first reported of USA 193 in 12.2 days. Relative to
    my latest elements (below), it was 14.6 late, well within the margin of
    uncertainty in the natural rate of decay; allowing for Earth's rotation over
    that interval, it was with 0.024 deg of the predicted track. The predicted track
    likely is somewhat unreliable, due to the lack of support for frozen orbits in
    the SGP models. I hope to post an updated elset later today.
