Hello,

A H-IIA rocket was launched from Tanegashima SC with the onboard IGS-10
Radar image sensing spacecraft today 2017/03/17 at 01:20:00 UTC. The
spacecraft was aiming to a circular, ~500 Km Sun Syncronous Orbit. The
vehicle made a dog-leg maneuver during the launch.

Here are the search elsets, based on a previous launch estimations:

IGS 10                                                   505 X 511 km
1 70000U 15500A   17076.07708333 0.00000000  00000-0  00000+0 0    02
2 70000  97.5051 147.6898 0004046 301.7898 293.1841 15.18152820    00

The possible search elset for the rocket body:

IGS 10 r                                                 426 X 518 km
1 70001U 15500B   17076.07708333 0.00000000  00000-0  00000+0 0    03
2 70001  97.4511 147.6785 0067098 145.8180  88.2530 15.29983957    06

Allow it for several seconds per day after epoch and several degrees of
cross-track error in the sky.


Jon.
