    Bob Christy, Greg Roberts and Peter Wakelin, contributed observations used to
    determine one or more of the following element sets.

    09052A's elements are the result of combining Bob Christy's Doppler radio TCA
    (time of closest approach) and Peter Wakelin's optical observations.
    
    At their present rate of separation, the STSS Demo spacecraft will reach their
    planned separation of 35 deg of central angle, or about 11 min of time, on or
    about 2009 Oct 15 UTC. At that time, 09052B can be expected to manoeuvre to
    match the mean motion of 09052A.
