    All of these elsets are crazy.
    
    Here are older elsets:
    
    1 25727U 99024A   02038.23741925  .00004712  00000-0  40228-3 0  4968
    2 25727  29.0699 108.7637 0592252 355.8263   3.7550 14.13713288142554
    
    1 25727U 99024A   02044.45197292 +.00004510 +00000-0 +38776-3 0 05299
    2 25727 029.0671 073.4440 0591229 052.8205 312.4884 14.13767914143430
    
    1 25727U 99024A   02051.93614469 +.00003572 +00000-0 +30358-3 0 05194
    2 25727 029.0644 030.9143 0590858 121.4505 244.5203 14.13826419144494
    
    The Thursday elset was:
    
    1 25727U 99024A   02058.21858441  .00000365  00000-0  16233-4 0  5039
    2 25727  29.0658 355.2069 0591763 178.8688 181.2003 14.13843372145384
    
    But this elset seems to have a drag that is about 1/10 of what it
    should be.  A more reasonable drag would be:
    
    Orion 3
    1 25727U 99024A   02058.21858441 0.00003365  00000-0  29615-3 0    01
    2 25727  29.0658 355.2069 0591763 178.8688 181.2003 14.13843372    03
