    msx was consistent with last night only about :00.3s earlier which
    is consistent with it being ~5 sec early last night ref 00255 elset.
    
    91082A is more interesting.  I got it in the SSE and managed to
    trak it over the top and into my "low" NNW.  some fine pairs and
    near appulse.  
    but was is "curious" is the timing.  my timer was within 30 ms
    range.  there is a pattern in mike's fitelem of the time 
    error resids, sat split initially late then
    progressively moves to early over the 6 pts, the sky was good
    and so were the pairs.  without seeing the pattern I would think
    is was me.  in order beginning with the 1st 
    
    :00.3 late
    :00.1 late
    :00.0 ontime (+81 elev)
    :00.4 early
    :00.7 early
    :00.8 early
    
    what do you make of that?  just a coincidence?  this was a high
    88 culm pass.  since the orbit is nearly circular, this timing flux 
    should not be an orbit perigee point problem.  
    some sort of parallax issue ?
