    There is some confusion about the debris source:
    Cosmos 2238 - 1993-018A (#22585) a RORSAT is not the possible
    candidate. The decay occured on 08 December 1994. The last 
    released ELSET - 94342.80998250 shows a MM of 16.5167... This
    is very near the decay generally no more then one rev away.
    With MPM+REENTRY and this ELSET + SFX 78, ap 13  I show
    an upper limit for the reentry:
    08 December 1994, 21:35 UTC +/- 06 minutes (19.67°N, 225.14°E)
    descending over the Pacific. 
    We have no crossings over Mexico +/- 02 revs around the last epoch (19:27 UTC).
    Later something more about other possible decayers.
