    I have received a report off-list, of an observation late on 2013 Mar 20 UTC of an object that appears to be USA 224
    (11002A / 37348). It was about 6.5 min late relative the search TLE I derived from Cees Bassa's short arc of a USA 224
    suspect on Mar 13 UTC, which I posted here:
    
    http://satobs.org/seesat/Mar-2013/0124.html
    
    If USA 224 was seen both times, and there were no orbit manoeuvres in the interim, then this revised TLE should yield
    fairly accurate predictions:
    
                                                            257 X 1009 km
