Wandered by the OrbView-2 control room at lunch time today.  

There were five (5) more burns since 8/29, ranging the mean orbit to 
689 x 691 km based on GPS Orbit Determination Data:

Burn #26  30-August       7:25 UTC
     #27  30-August       9:39 
     #28  30-August      18:48
     #29  30-August      22:48
     #30  31-August       2:55

Target is 705 km

More as I dig it out...

SeaStar made two or more maneuvres, probably on the afternoon of Aug.30 
to reach this orbit:
SeaStar / OrbView-2                          701 x 685
1 24883U 97037A   97243.80549276  .00000915  00000-0  20000-3 0   572 
2 24883  98.2123 341.3199 0011009 264.1817  46.5618 14.60077037  4629

This was OIG's latest elset on Sep.1 at 14:30 UT 
Is this the operational orbit ?
