    This comes up periodically.  Imprecise elements give different pass times for
    various components. We had the same situation with Mir.  Unless it is known that
    something is undocked, all elements for components should be ignored. Just use
    the elements for the main ISS.  It's been this way for years. It seems pointless
    to waste time contacting NASA or Spacecommand again about it.
