    My Decay Watch page at
            http://www.wingar.demon.co.uk/satevo/dkwatch/
    has updated predictions for the following, plus #26065 which I covered
    in my previous message and may update again in the next few hours.
    
    
    #603 = 63- 22 B = Transit 5A3 Scout X-3 r
    
    The latest elset has this only 0.3 sec late on prediction. My estimate
    of decay is unchanged at May 17 08:59, now +-16h.
             _________________________________________
    
    #10135 = 77- 61 B = Cosmos 925 r
    
    Revised decay predictions are:
            SpaceCom: May 17 08:53 +-2d at 69.9 N, 133.0 W
            SatEvo  : May 16 23:48 +-14h
    The latest elset has this 0.8 sec late against yesterday's prediction.
             _________________________________________
    
    #20338 = 89- 94 A = Molniya 3-36
    
    I now predict this decay for May 19.5 +-1.5d.
             _________________________________________
    
    #26114 = 00- 17 B = IMAGE Delta 2 r
    
    Revised decay predictions are:
            SpaceCom: May 17 06:32 +-2d at 42.2 S, 136.1 W
            SatEvo  : May 17 05:07 +-14h
    The latest elset shows this 7 sec late against my previous prediction.
