    Report time 17:00 UTC
    Alan's analysis of the mixed ELSETs for #27557 and #27558
    is  easily confirmed by a look at the arguments of perigee:
    They are roughly 115-120 different. The larger one is ASTRA's
    My ELSET comparison program shows for the time of the ASTRA
    orbit manoeuvre:
    26 November 21:59 UTC and a Delta of 3.70 km between the 2 ELSETs
    in excellent agreement with Bjoerns calculation.
    2002-053A (#27557) ASTRA 1K
    At this time there is no post manoeuvre prediction from SCC.
    MPM+REENTRY delivers with the ELSETs 02331.115... - 02331.542...
    (SFX 150 ap 016) the decay on
    30 November 10:07 UTC +/-06 hours  (22.6S, 155.8E)
    ascending over the Pacific.
    2002-053B(#27558) BLock DM-3
    Also no current prediction from SCC
