    My Decay Watch page at http://www.wingar.demon.co.uk/satevo/dkwatch/ has
    been updated with further details of, and predicted elsets for, the
    following decayers...
    
    _____________________________________________________________________
    
    #21538 = 91- 46 E = Gorizont 32 aux motor
    
    Current decay predictions:
       SpaceCom: Aug 22 06:12 +-14h       39.5 N   176.1 E
       SatEvo:   Aug 22 07:52 +-5h        46.1 N   178.1 E
    
    Latest elset:
    Gorizont 32 aux motor                            591 x 115 km
    1 21538U 91046E   00234.43616739  .22357825  11295-4  51504-3 0  3816
    2 21538  46.5305 192.8506 0353451  36.3823 326.0483 15.72004143127677
    
    If it survives SpaceCom's decay point, it might cross the W USA from
    Eugene, Oregon, at 06:25 to Dallas, Texas, at 06:32. I show it decaying
    on the following rev as it tracks eastwards over the N Pacific. That
    orbit continues to pass to the SW of Los Angeles at 07:59 UTC. My
    predicted elsets for the final three revs:
    Gorizont 32 aux motor                            319 x 108 km
    1 21538U 91046E   00235.18829483  .59334882  69173+0  62684-3 0 93812
