    Final decay analyses:
    Source   Prediction made    Predicted decay at      Latitude Longitude
                   UTC                UTC                  deg      deg
    SpaceCom   May 24 13:23     May 24 10:25 +-58m       19.2 N    36.6 W
    SatEvo     May 24 15:15     May 24 09:36 +-1h        26.8 S   144.9 E
    
    Final elset:
    Meteor 1-29 r    3.8  2.6  0.0  5.1 v  6.1       150 x 137 km
    1 11252U 79005B   01144.22317238  .12322341  25158-5  17384-3 0  8236
    2 11252  97.2148 178.1236 0009801 248.7290 111.4262 16.48582581228560
    
    Note: the final elset shows this running 22 sec late against the
    prediction I posted yesterday. I show it decaying near the end of 
    the final SatEvo-predicted orbit:
    Meteor 1-29 r    3.8  2.6  0.0  5.1 v  6.1       122 x 116 km
    1 11252U 79005B   01144.34423524  .88368952  20490+2  35448-3 0 98236
    2 11252  97.2121 178.2644 0004834 248.2122 111.7363 16.57806533228588
    This puts it northbound just to the NE of Australia after passing 
    between Australia and New Zealand.
