    2000-076B (#26625) Ariane 44L R/B
    
    SPACECOM'S FINAL REPORT - prepared Jan 25, 19:51 UTC - shows 
    the decay on
        25 January, 06:56 UTC +/- 07 minutes (06.0N, 142.0E)
    on a descending pass over the Pacific.
    MPM+REENTRY delivers with the ELSETs 02024.821... - 02025.145...
    and SFX 225, ap 005 the decay on
        25 January, 05:32 UTC +/- 22 minutes (05.46N, 167.27E)
    also descending over the Pacific.
    I see no reason for the later decay predicted by SPACECOM. There
    is also a significant crosstrack deviation. The result seems very
    doubtful.
