    As is not that unusual, old elements for this objects are still being
    given by OIG, e.g.
    Cosmos 2377      6.0  2.0  0.0  4.5 d
    1 26775U 01022A   01282.99097222  .01211848  59802-5  32621-3 0  5497
    2 26775  67.0639  50.8412 0068644  96.5906  60.3555 16.21426420 21435
    
    which corresponds to October 09.991 and a 106 x 162 mile orbit on the
    verge of decay.
    
    Clear and dark skies!
