    SPACCOM'S 12 HOURS BEFORE DECAY message - prepared Nov 09, 20:26 UTC
    predicts the decay on
        10 November, 08:43 UTC +/- 08 hours (19.6N, 87.1E)
    on a descending pass over the Gulf of Bengal.
    MPM+REENTRY delivers with the ELSETs 01313.353... - 01313.784... 
    the decay on
        10 November, 08:48 UTC +/- 27 minutes (0.75N, 95.93E)
    on the same descending pass over the Indian Ocean.
    BTW: My preceding prediction based on a wrong epoch input and 
    was 01 hour in error. The correct time for the reentry was 
    08:20 UTC (52.8N, 325.1E over the North Atlantic).
    We see now a small slip to a later decay. Remember: If #26972 survive
    for roughly 01 hours the East coast people (Washington-Baltimore, New
    York)have a big chance to see the reentry.....
