    Japan will launch two classified reconnaissance satellites on the next H-2A
    launch (probably in March).
    What is the American (U.S. Gov/USAF/NASA OIG) policy on releasing orbital
    elements of satellites classified by foreign (though allied) countries?
    Can we expect elements to be released, or will these two satellites (plus
    others to follow) need to be added to the list of targets to be tracked by
    amateur observers?
