Phobos-Grunt Reentry Ground Tracks

    I've started to generate reentry ground tracks based on Harro Zimmer's 
    predictions, whose time uncertainty is
    now of only 12 hours. 
    The current tracks are generated by propagating the available TLE to the 
    predicted reentry date and by adding an
    additional delay of +- 15 minutes. This delay will be decreased as the orbit 
    propagation becomes more reliable.
    The up to date map is available at the following link:
    (see also Table I for more info on reentry predictions.)
