The final OIG element set for #23849 = 96- 23 B (Priroda R) is:
Priroda R
1 23849U 96023B   96140.02923441 +.26290090 +12686-4 +15693-3 0 00691

which placed it 4.6s early with respect to the final predicted
elements I posted last Friday. I calculate that decay occurred at 
about May 19.07.

           -------------------------------------------

Object #23559 = 86- 17 JF (GFZ 1 deb) decayed at about May 19.28. The
final OIG element is:
