    New Zealand has two near-decay daylight passes of 17264 Molniya 1-70, the 
    first a high elevation one  in just over an hour. the second not so high but 
    still good later this afternoon  time (currently expected around 0340)  if 
    it is still in orbit.
    We are not permitted to refer to Space-Track predictions in here but you can 
    see for yourself there is a problem.   The prediction from Calsky shows 
    decay around 0126UTC
    I will not be in  a position to post direct to the list  at those times or 
    for some time afterwards, but should anything significant be seen I will try 
    and get a message through.
