    The payload should have a 717 minute period:
    
    NROL-1 
    1 99991U          04245.01643588 0.00000000  00000-0  00000-0 0    00
    2 99991  59.2900 231.1000 7450000 304.8700 356.1300  2.00500000    04
    
    But it should maneuver to a 63 degree inclination.
    
    The Centaur may be in a lower orbit, but the mean motion is
    very uncertain:
    
    NROL-1 Centaur   
    1 99992U          04245.01789074 0.00000000  00000-0  00000-0 0    02
    2 99992  59.2900 231.1000 7450000 303.8700 357.1300  2.05000000    05
    
    These elsets fit Ted's observations.
