    I've been running SatEvo against the TLEs for Kuaizhou-1, NORAD 39262, and am somewhat puzzled by the way the decay date prediction has evolved over the past week, particularly in the last day.   I'm not adept enough with SatEvo to know whether this is common behavior, due to something the satellite is actually doing, problems with the TLE data, characteristics of SatEvo or what.
    If someone with more knowledge about such things could take a look and offer an opinion about what is (or isn't) going on, it would be appreciated.
