    #13964 = 83- 25 A = Molniya 1-57
    Since January 21, his may have experienced two events when its drag fell
    sharply, perhaps as solar panels broke away near perigee. My latest
    prediction is for decay at Jan 24 21:44 +-10h near perigee at  62.5 S,
    97.8 W.
    
    There are more details plus a (probably not very accurate) predicted
    orbital evolution for this at
