    SpaceTrack has now 'found' Tiangong 1 and published an orbit. Orbit 
    details - http://www.zarya.info/Diaries/China/Shenzhou/Shenzhou.php#11053
    
    Almost certainly, the object that has been tagged as Tiangong 1 
    (2011-053A/37820) for the past week was the Shenzhou OM (2012-032H/38550).
