    Note: this enters eclipse while northbound near 69 deg S and leaves
    eclipse southbound over the Arctic. The latest elset shows it running
    12 sec late against yesterday's prediction. I estimate that this may
    decay near the end of the final predicted rev above, northbound over
    the E Pacific.
