I was in a hurry to post elsets this morning, and did not
check them. It appears I have exaggerated MM and ndot,
whereas OIG has grossly underestimated ndot.

I am at work, and have no way of logging in to OIG to
get the new elsets. My latest orbit analysis gives decay
tonight (961008) at around 2100 UTC.

Try to get new elsets (and post them), and though 'accuracy'
of predictions may be +- 1 hr, it might be possible to
find it from S.America (!) now, and possibly S.Africa
tonight (it may break into pieces, some of which survive longer)
