    #20496 = 90- 15 A = LACE (USA 51)
    
    Although no elsets have been posted for this classified object, SpaceCom
    has issued a decay warning for it for May 25 05:30 +-2h near 29.5 N,
    39.9 W. It is possible that elsets will be released before its decay, in
    which case they will appear (within one hour) in my select.tle and
    dklist.tle files, available via my SatEvo WWW page.
    
    
    #25235 = 98- 12 C = SNOE Pegasus rocket
    
    SpaceCom posted its first decay warning a couple of hours ago.
