    An underburn occurred: the orbit was only raised 1.6 miles (2.6 km.) -
    according to NASA and this appears to be correct.
    
    The Russian Information Agency reported that it was LOWERED by this amount:
    I think the reporter has interpreted the fact that the final orbit was lower
    than expected as meaning the orbit was lowered.
    
    I won't post TLEs as these are readily available.
    
    (Potential obs of a nice pass near Saturn an hour or so ago totally clouded
    out.)
