    Igor - but if I look at the TLE for 29747 - debris with high
    perigee and apogee so little decay - the back-propagated elset
    shows it passed through the FY-1C altitude at 2225 UTC or so
    over S China. I suspect the post impact elsets for FY-1C may
    have been assembled 'by hand' and be in error (even a time zone
    mistake?? - not unknown in older TLEs!)
