    Final elset:
    Cosmos 1689      6.0  1.4  0.0  5.2 v   19       142 x 131 km
    1 16110U 85090A   01014.28101211  .31058998  25524-5  30000-3 0  6295

    Note: The final elset shows this running 7 sec early against my final 
    prediction. I show this decaying southbound near Sumatra in the west
    of Indonesia. The preceding northbound arc took it across the USA from 
    Miami at 08:18 UTC to E of Detroit at 08:20. The following northbound 
    arc could have carried it from Odessa, TX, at 09:46 to NE Montana at 
    09:50. My predicted elset for the final rev:
    Cosmos 1689      6.0  1.4  0.0  5.2 v   19       122 x 116 km
