    Unless SpaceCom is confused by another object, it appears that the
    perigee of Shenzhou 2 has been raised significantly in the past few
    hours. The latest two elsets for this are:
    
    Shenzhou 2                                       333 x 197 km
    1 26664U 01001A   01010.40241568  .00488707  83774-5  37833-3 0    62
    2 26664  42.5771 351.2888 0102358 134.0200   2.1938 16.03316553   114
    Shenzhou 2                                       334 x 329 km
    1 26664U 01001A   01010.83241043  .00071790  00000-0  37833-3 0    74
    2 26664  42.5829 348.6200 0003728 208.8287 229.0353 15.79718520   182
    
    No elsets for its Long March rocket have been posted since...
    
    SZ-2 CZ-2F r    10.0  3.0  0.0  4.0 d   20       327 x 197 km
    1 26665U 01001B   01010.37860834  .00854908  83828-5  63599-3 0    59
    2 26665  42.5762 351.4325 0098279 133.6717 227.2330 16.04483912   107
    
    My preliminary estimate is for this to decay about January 20.
