    Great work, Scott! Your residuals are almost all excellent.

    Description of 2-line elements: http://www.satobs.org/element.html
    
    05004C seems to have lowered its orbit slightly, perhaps late on Mar 08 UTC. As
    of the above epoch, it trailed 05004A by 7.9 s at the ascending node, roughly
    their operational separation, with little relative motion along-track.
    
    The Centaur propulsive acceleration continues to subside.
