    I would like to observe USA-179 (visually, or by by VHF radio).
    I have found TLE set "classified.tle". There  are elements for "USA 179 
    Cn r".
    Are they the right elements for USA-179 satellite? The "Cn r" letters 
    are confusing me, does't they mean that these elements belong to the 
    carrier/rocket of USA-179?
