    Things don't quite add up for me:
    
    With elset for Dec.19,
    ETS-6            6.0  0.0  0.0  5.0 d   65       38883 x 8361 km
    1 23230U 94056A   01353.85203764 -.00000070  00000-0  10000-3 0  9601
    2 23230  11.8226 247.9028 5086800 241.0682  59.1064  1.67091823 44745
    
    I get ETS-6 at RA 07:10 Dec.-28.55 (S of delta CMa) at 08:11:30
    
    At 08:00 UTC I get RA 05:42 Dec.-23.45 (2000)
    
    Beta CMa at RA 06:22 Dec.-26.0 at 08:05:30
    
    The two extremes are close to my predictions.
    Beta CMa is almost midway between two predictions (front/back of the 'B'
    surface), and if this is correct, you would have to extend your search about
    ten minutes both ways (or wait for a clarification / improved predictions).
