    I have now heard on NASA-TV that there was a test firing of  the reaction 
    control jets so unless I have  information to suggest otherwise I assume 
    this is what I saw.  (I have limited time to investigate any further at this 
    Shadow exit was at approximately 1610 UTC.   Separation was approximately 45 
    seconds.  NASA-TV at the time of writing reports separation of 200 nautical 
    miles and an increase in separation of 10 miles per orbit.
