    My opinion is no.  It appears that the part of the orbit that was
    causing most of the drag moved from solar "1 PM" to solar "morning"
    during this time and that is why the drag did not increase as much
    as would have been expected.
    
    Due to the length of my reply and the fact that it is off topic, I
    have placed it on my web pages here:
