Hi Ronnie,

Having trouble adding new stations to TruSat right now, but luckily Ted's ObsReduce program is easy to add a site to. I used 9999 as a temporary, using your given coordinates. So, your observation reduces to:

28888 05 042A   9999 G 20200403012320000 17 25 0555840+073116 28 S

I made the assumption that it actually passed 0.2 deg (12') from Betelguese, as this matches the track and is very easy to see it as in conjunction with a bright star at that distance.

So residuals are:
2020 Apr 03  01:23:20.0 UTC   05042A    28888  SGP4

Star A: 05:55:10.3052  +07:24:25.426  (2000.0) Mag .769

Object appulsed A; Miss dist =  0.200000 deg, Pos angle =  345 deg (pred)

Object: 05:55:50.4151  +07:31:09.603  (2000.0)  +/- 0.030 deg (0.150 X Miss Dist)

Obs - Pred: 0.036 deg X-track; 6.509 s early, relative 4.98 day old elset:

Quite good!

Keep reporting; perhaps TruSat will get the bug fixed and you use it to make your own reports.
