    Just downloaded the tle-new.txt file from Celestrak.com and checked for 
    CloudSat and CALIPSO. Although the actual TLEs seem to be correct the 
    designations have been interchanged. CloudSat was listed on tle-new as 
    2006-016A (#29107) and CALIPSO as 2006-016B (#29108). This is opposite of 
    what was reported earlier on SeeSat-L and also as given in the draft issue of 
    NASAs SPACEWARN Bulletin #630 (nssdc.gsfc.nasa.gov/spacewarn/). Interessing 
    enough the mentioned Bulletin #630 gives a launch time of 11:02UT on 
    28-APR-06 which is one hour later than the actual launch!
