    Based on the latest elset (below), I attempted to observe Raduga 33 as it passed
    through perigee at about 90 km altitude, while in shadow. It did not appear.
    
    1 23794U 96010A   04127.11516133 1.00000000  68013-5  16461-2 0  5222

    I observed on 2004 May 06, between 04:33 UTC and 04:49 UTC, at azimuth 16 deg,
    elevation 9.6 deg. Limiting magnitude was about 6.
    
    USSTRATCOM's latest decay estimate is 2004 May 06 at 06:19:00 UTC, at 41.2 N,
    75.7 W.
