    I was fortunate to observe a close appulse of a star, just before 09052C
    entered eclipse.

    Russell Eberst, Peter Wakelin, Mike Waterman, and I, contributed
    observations used to determine the following element set:
    
    STSS Demo r                                              162 X 540 km

    Arc 20100209.75-0211.03 WRMS resid 0.090 totl 0.033 xtrk
    
    If additional observations are reported that fall within the arc of the
    above, I will revisit the analysis.
    
    Using Satevo 0.51, I estimate decay no later than 2010 Feb 19.
