Observed #23907, Noss 2-3 Rk again, running 4m 8s late;  It was predicted
to pass 6.5 deg above Alphard at 04:15:22 26May UTC according to Skymap
(SGP4), but passed about 3.5 deg above Alphard at 04:19:30 instead.

Have the observations over the past few days, taken together, provided
enough information for a new elset to be created, or do the observations
need to be more precise?  I've never tried to modify elements to make them
fit observations, so excuse my ignorance on this subject.
