Hi All,
I've just noticed that some TLEs from Space Track have epoch in the future. Is that usual?Does this simply mean that the TLE parameters have been propagated for a future time?
As an example, object with Norad 20413 have epoch 17121, almost 3 days in the future.
(I've also noticed that the age of high interest objects has increased).
Regards,Simone
