    As an example, I have generated the FPAS of your report
    using the online tool at:
    The NORAD is 00000 since the satellite has not been yet identified.
    The report contains both time and position as in your message.

    it might be more or less in the range 0.1-0.15 °/s . The altitude might be of 
    the order of 3000 km or so.
