    Congratulations, Andy, on posting your first positional observations:
    
    http://satobs.org/seesat/Mar-2005/0091.html
    
    Four of the five have very good to excellent residuals. 
    
    The one bad one, 05004C of 2005 Mar 08 23:48:59.16 UTC, may have been reduced
    incorrectly, so may yet be salvaged.

    As of the above epoch of 05004C, it trailed 05004A by 8.0 s at the ascending
    node, roughly their operational separation, with little relative motion
    along-track.
    
    The Centaur propulsive acceleration has subsided in recent days.
