    I fit the following elements to data reported by David Brierley, Bram Dorreman,
    Walter Nissen, Alberto Rango, Peter Wakelin and Mike Waterman, observed during
    2001 May 11 - 15 UTC:
    
    USA 129         15.0  3.0  0.0  5.1 v
    1 24680U 96072A   01135.84277778  .00019051  00000-0  25671-3 0    07
    2 24680  97.8190 198.5232 0486801 336.2056  21.7179 14.81450892    07
    
    WRMS residuals are about 0.01 deg.
    
    I made the following observation last night:
    
    24680 96 072A   2701 G 20010516025449840 17 25 0703767+470928 67 S
    
    The position appears to be accurate, but the time appears to be at least
    several tenths of a second late, so I did not use in the above analysis. If
    further obs confirm that the object was running late, then I will consider
    using it.
