    At this moment there is no FINAL REPORT from SPACECOM. There 2 HOURS BEFORE DECAY
    message predicts the decay on 
                          29 November, 09:52 UTC +/- 02 hours (82.8N, 219.4E)
    on a descending pass over the Arctic Ocean. If Iridium survived the pass crossed
    Canada and the western part of the United States. 
    But MPM + REENTRY delivers with the ELSETs 00334.208... - 00334.330...the decay 
    on                   29 November, 09:45 UTC +/- 07 minutes ( 69.95N, 86.65E)
    on a northbound pass over Northern Sibiria.
    But let us wait and see for the next SPACECOM message and for a final conclusion.
