    Hello Jim and list,
    
    The elset you used was for a launch at 01:00 UT on Sept. 20. It was good for any
    day after that, as long as the launch time was still 01:00. If not you only had
    to correct the time of pass but the trajectory in Az/El would stay the same. I
    guess that's what you did.
    
    Yesterday, I posted this revised predicted TLE for launch at 02:40 UT :
    
    STARSHINE 3
    1 90004U 01042D   01273.20023559  .00001694  00000-0  54654-4 0    11
    2 90004  67.0499 118.5800 0005594 254.2442 326.7804 15.31914967    16
    
    There is only a 14 seconds time difference for a predicted pass today at 23:15
    UT from my place compared with this OIG elset :
    
    STARSHINE 3
    1 26929U 01043A   01273.42133989  .00024889  00000-0  81734-3 0    20
    2 26929  67.0555 117.9102 0004960 219.4654 140.5664 15.31517941    35
    
    It will be interesting to watch the change in magnitude of the flashes as it
    gets into a lower and lower orbit month after month.
    
    I have a pass at the above mentioned time. Will wait for it.
