    In my previous post, I mistakenly stated that USSTRATCOM issued an elset of the
    Shenzhou 4 spacecraft in its insertion orbit:
    
                                                                 207 X 341
    1 27630U 02061A   02363.99130504 -.00002620  82868-5 -20368-5 0    19
    2 27630  42.4085 338.1747 0100490 131.4080 229.5479 16.03477566    55
    
    The epoch and ascending node of this elset is well after the circularization
    burn, so this is in fact an elset of the rocket body, cross-tagged as the
    spacecraft. There are no elsets of Shenzhou 4 in its insertion orbit.
