    Report time 10:45 UTC
    2001-050B (#26971) Molniya rocket 3. Stage
    SPACECOM'S FINAL REPORT -prepared Nov 27, 01:55 UTC - shows the
    decay on
        27 November, 01:46 UTC +/- 07 minutes (61.0N, 14.0E)
    on a northbound pass over Sweden (Kopperberg Region)
    My final analysis with MPM+REENTRY based on the ELSETs 01330.572... -
    01330.999... delivers the decay on
       27 November, 01:46 UTC +/- 05 minutes (61.03N, 09.13E)
    on the same pass over Norway (Oppland Region).
    Two remarks: 1) SPACECOM'S longitude position is not compatible
    with the ground track and definitely in error.
    2) My preceding prediction (06 hours before decay) was well within the
    uncertainty windows above.
