    Hi everyone,
    A reboost should not cause a no show over that short period of time. I 
    would expect it to make only a few seconds difference or less. I suspect 
    George failed to observe the ISS over San Diego for a different reason. 
    I am confident the HA predictions are accurate, especially for the ISS. 
    We download the latest elements from SpaceTrack every 6 hours.
