Oh well, I didn't finish "in the money" but it was fun looking!
FORTE for me was steady at 4th magnitude.  Culmination was 37 deg 
above the eastern horizon.  This elset from OIG
1 24920U 97047A   97241.88321338  .00000167  00000-0  10000-3 0    26

was off quite a bit.  FORTE was 2 min 42.5 sec early and the track was 
2 degress to the west.
The OIG elset for 97047B had me looking for the booster, supposedly 
trailing, but I did not see it.
