    The decay of #7969 (75- 56 B = Cosmos 744 rocket) may occur in the next
    few minutes, possibly during a northbound pass over the W USA and
    Canada.
    
    The following elset, which may be the last one for this object, has just
    been issued:
    Cosmos 744 r     3.8  2.6  0.0  5.1 v 11.1       138 x 126 km
    1 07969U 75056B   00022.65461921  .18086513 -86473-6  13593-3 0   781
    2 07969  81.2355 253.7183 0009619 160.9935 257.5662 16.52740985354152
    
    I predict decay near the end of this orbit. The track takes it near Los
    Angeles and San Diego at 17:03 UTC, Las Vegas at 17:04, Boise, Idaho, at
    17:06 and Calgary, Alberta, at 17:08. My current estimate is for decay
    near the northbound equator crossing at 16:55 (121.6d W) while
    SpaceCom's latest notice is for decay at 17:02 at 11.9 N, 120.4 W.
