SatEvo decay list #45  (issued 1998 January 3)

Here is my New Year edition of SatEvo decay analyses and predictions. 
The "Actual?" decay dates are my estimates based on the final 
available elements. Pegasus debris are included if I predict their 
decay by February 15; other objects are included to March 15. 

This and other recent decay lists are available on the WWW via 
my SatEvo page at
               http://www.wingar.demon.co.uk/satevo/
In addition you can find current elements (auto-updated every three 
hours or so) for the still-to-decay objects below, together with
other objects of interest, including Mir, all of the Iridiums and 
recently launched/catalogued objects.
