    Two elsets have appeard at OIG as of May 31 12:50 UTC:
    GRO                                              480 x 361

    GRO                                              475 x 362

    The perigee didn't quite reach 350 km, there are two different MMs
    given, but (hopefully) no reason to believe the negative drag.
    I suggest using only Epoch + line2 of elset #822:
