    That because they raised the orbit of the ISS, a few hours ago.
    
    That will have an effect, on where it's in orbit and it's relative positon to the shuttle.
    
    Once the boost is done, then they have to recalculate the shuttle orbit changes, since the shuttle has to get higher in orbit now. While they have predicted tle data for the shuttle assuming the iss orbit boost goes ok, if there's a problem with the boost, that will effect the data.
    
    That's my take, I don't think straight.
