    There is a possibility of a significant error in SpaceTrack data. 
    Tiangong 1 may be currently 'lost' from the catalogue and languishing 
    somewhere in a temporary one for unidentified objects. Some notes here 
    on what might have happened: 
    Has anyone looked for Tiangong 1 lately, has anyone seen Tiangong 1 
    lately? Was it as bright as expected?
    Also, has anyone noted anything unidentified in a similar plane but at 
    370 km rather than 330 km?
