    USA 129 fix                                      978 x 288
    1 24680U 96072A   00251.77660427  .00033500  00000-0  47323-3 0    18

    may be a reasonable orbit, based on the assumption that it manoeuvred
    on the orbit just before Russell's observation on Sep.7 (about 18:56).
    This kind of pass, near California southbound, has been used many
    times before, and the 0.02 MM decrease is almost standard too.
    
    It fits Russell's Sep7 and Sep 8 observations within a second and 0.1 d.
    Computed with VEC2TLE, and adjusted by about +-10 sec.
