    #10860 = 78- 45 A = Cosmos 1005
    
    Current decay predictions:
       SpaceCom: Jun 14 22:12 +-2h        60.8 S   119.6 W
       SatEvo:   Jun 14 21:26 +-1h        55.8 N    74.1 E
    
    This may have already decayed. The latest elset is:
    Cosmos 1005      5.0  1.5  0.0  5.4 v   15       156 x 144 km
    1 10860U 78045A   00166.69069840  .12761787 -95457-6  28375-3 0  5051
    2 10860  81.1767 132.5065 0009382 249.5957 110.4407 16.46008901214810
    My prediction for the final rev is:
    Cosmos 1005      5.0  1.5  0.0  5.4 v   15       115 x 111 km
    1 10860U 78045A   00166.87250295 1.94873462  50000+2  59039-3 0 95051
    2 10860  81.1725 132.2485 0003034 248.8540 111.1136 16.60150428214843
    
    I show this decaying a few minutes ago while southbound as it tracked
    from near Omsk, Russia, towards eastern India.
