    Just checked OIG at 0728UT Jan 14 = 2001 014.3333
    No new elements for Iridium 84 (25530 ) since
    2001 005.6 , nearly 8 days. Does anybody know whats
    going on?. It looks like US SPACECOM has lost it,
    or perhaps declared it a military object whose
    wherabouts arent to be known to ordinary mortals
    If the first is true, it doesnt say much for their techniques,
    I have morning visiblity of the orbital plane,
    but the weather has provided high cloud, and the Moon 
    light scattered of this cloud makes binocular observations
    of mag 6 objects invisible.
