    I have updated USA 116's elements:
    
    USA 116         15.0  3.0  0.0  5.1 v
    1 23728U 95066A   00160.00670718  .00014940  00000-0  35651-3 0    08
    2 23728  97.9007 271.2617 0455046 221.1386 135.4886 14.75933225    05
    
    I observed USA 129 at 2000 June 09 03:19:14, apparently on track, and within a
    fraction of 1 second of the time predicted by these 2 day old elements:
    
    USA 129         15.0  3.0  0.0  5.1 v
    1 24680U 96072A   00159.09765046  .00020553  00000-0  30383-3 0    04
    2 24680  97.8887 222.1065 0504831  13.1950 348.1995 14.75833197    04
    
    I could not obtain a position because most stars were obscured by haze
    illuminated by moonlight.
    
    The geomagnetic storm has now subsided, according to this NOAA site:
