    This was USA 186's orbit as of my observations last night:
    
    USA 186         15.0  4.0  0.0  5.3 v
    1 28888U 05042A   07165.09504248  .00009783  00000-0  94404-4 0    01
    2 28888  97.8909 227.0437 0525942  32.0191 331.1859 14.79294528    07
    Arc 2007 Jun 10.11 - 14.10, WRMS residuals = 0.052 deg
    
    In the event of a reboost today, then the following search elements correspond
    to the probable earliest and latest perigee passages at which the manoeuvre
    would be made:
    
    Earliest reboost
    1 71001U          07165.50631944  .00009687  00000-0  94404-4 0    08
    2 71001  97.8909 227.4496 0535800  30.6793   1.4250 14.77000000    07
    
    Latest reboost
    1 71002U 05042A   07165.77671296  .00009687  00000-0  94404-4 0    03
    2 71002  97.8909 227.7164 0535800  29.7984   1.4000 14.77000000    07
    
    I plan to observe the object in the orbit it was in last night, but will also
    plot the 71001 and 71002 tracks, so that if it does not show up, I will be
    prepared to quickly aim to its expected post-manoeuvre track.
