    A summary of today's update to my Decay Watch page...
    _____________________________________________________________________
    
    #10362 = 77- 91 A = Cosmos 955
    
    Current decay estimates:
       SpaceCom: Sep  8 01:29 +-2d        16.5 N    36.4 E
       SatEvo:   Sep  7 04:56 +-11h
    
    Latest elset:
    Cosmos 955       5.0  1.5  0.0  5.4 v   24       210 x 199 km
    1 10362U 77091A   00249.70578251  .02748508 -94391-6  91733-3 0  5973
    2 10362  81.1808 231.0911 0008265 174.1881 187.5467 16.25719177261450
    _____________________________________________________________________
    
    Object: #23941 = 96- 37 B = TOMS r
    
    Final decay estimates:
       SpaceCom: Sep  5 06:25 +-26m       40.1 S   177.7 W
       SatEvo:   Sep  5 06:10 +-30m        0.0     169.2 W
    
    Final elset:
    TOMS r           3.0  0.0  0.0  6.0 d  2.3       131 x 116 km
    1 23941U 96037B   00249.22716112  .99999999  20491-5  48244-3 0   462
    2 23941  97.1723  88.0454 0011178 309.6224  50.5024 16.56154725228902
    
    This survived a bit longer than I expected, with decay most likely while
    it was southbound over the Pacific to the S of the Hawaiian Is on the
    orbit given by the final elset.
