    1986-068D (#16939) MOLNIYA 1-68 RB 2
    
    24 hours after the decay there is no FINAL REPORT from SPACECOM. Their last
    forecast was the  2 HOURS BEFORE DECAY  message.
    My final analysis with MPM + REENTRY and the actual solar flux and geomagnetic
    data - based on the ELSET'S 01199.752 - 01200.391... delivers the decay on
                      19 July, 10:52 UTC +/- 11 minutes (14.30S, 171.07E)
    on a northbound pass over the Pacific. This is 3 minutes later as SPACECOM'S
    2 HOURS BEFORE DECAY had predicted.
