    NROL-36 has been rescheduled for launch on an Atlas V-401, from VAFB, on 2012 Aug 03 at 07:27 UTC.
    
    http://www.spaceflightnow.com/atlas/av033/status.html
    
    The Aug 03 launch time is 13.5 min earlier than that of Aug 02, which is close to the expected -14 min/d movement of a
    NOSS planar window.
    
    Here are updated approximate elements:
