    I have discarded my epoch 05065.13935035 elset of 05004C, which was based on a
    short arc, resulting in too low a mean motion.
    
    As of the above epoch of 05004C, it trailed 05004A by 7.52 s at the ascending
    node, roughly their operational separation, with little relative motion
    along-track.
    
    The Centaur continues its propulsive acceleration, which has reduced its mean
    altitude by at least 0.8 km since launch, and has reduced it flash period to
    less than 5 s.
