Hi Kevin,

Good catch!

This is USA 179 r [28385/04034B], last seen 117 days ago. It is one of
those objects with a low perigee so our elements do not stay accurate
for long.

Here are the classfd.tle elements propagated to the time of your
observation and then fitting against for mean anomaly and RA of the
ascending node against the observations below. The Bstar drag is a
guess and may be quite off; it could be late or early by quite a bit.
