Does anyone there track MIR? What a dumb question... :) well I have a 
question... In the last couple days I have been retrieving TLE's from the 
OIG database, namely MIR... and well, just yesterday, I noticed something 
particularly weird... Monday MIR was just completing appox. orbit 
55345.XX somthing or other... and now I use the TLE's from OIG and they 
are giving me an orbit number of something like 43239.XX, I have made no 
changes in the program (stsplus) so I guarantee that is not the 
problem... Was there an error in the TLE's for a month and they just now 
caught it? Or did the Russians throw the Space Station in to reverse? :) 
If anyone can help, it will be great.. TIA
