The following elements are based on observations by Cees Bassa, Scott Tilley and Peter Wakelin:

USA 259                                               2101 X 37748 km
1 40344U 14081A   14348.76518519  .00000000  00000-0  00000-0 0    04
2 40344  62.8499 212.6578 6776239 266.7211  92.6293  2.03513814    09
Arc 20141213.94-1214.77 WRMS resid 0.005 totl 0.004 xtrk

The spacecraft is expected to manoeuvre during the next few days or weeks to achieve a standard Molniya 2:1 resonant
ground track, i.e. that repeats daily at two revolution intervals.
