I calculate that object #23583 = 95- 20 C (Progress-M 27 deb) decayed 
at about June 25.04.

The final OIG elset is was:
95- 20 C
1 23583U 95020C   96176.71804566  .05110304  12209-4  54295-3 0  4066

and my penultimate calculated elset is:
95- 20 C
95020C  
1 23583U 95020C   96176.96067123  .30617453  11831+1  89910-3 0 94054

                   ---------------------------------

Object #23462 = 95-  1 B (Atlas 2AS Cent R) is predicted to decay at
about June 27.95.

The latest OIG element is:
95-  1 B
1 23462U 95001B   96178.44861560  .28905878 -68673-5  92970-3 0  9664

A fit to 12 elsets since epoch 96176 has a maximum error of 18 seconds
and leads to the following predicted element approaching decay:
95-  1 B
1 23462U 95001B   96179.82311316  .99999999  10437+1  25685-2 0 99667
