The latest OIG element for the decaying object #23336 = 94- 72 A 
(Cosmos 2293) is:
Cosmos 2293
1 23336U 94072A   96131.16472874  .01397683  71804-5  59686-3 0  1955
2 23336  64.9870   5.6449 0062808 251.2899 108.2123 16.17327458 86343

Adjusting both n and ndot to give a better fit (within 0.7 sec) to the 
seven elsets I have since 129.61, leads me to predict decay at about 
May 14.5.
SatEvo predicted elements are:
Cosmos 2293
