    Final decay analyses:

    Note: The final elset, more than 5 hours before SpaceCom's estimated
    decay time, shows this running 5 sec early against the prediction I 
    posted earlier today. I still compute a later decay than does SpaceCom,
    placing it southbound over the eastern Pacific on the last of these
    SatEvo-predicted revs:
    PAS-10 Proton r1                                 145 x 120 km
