    28896 2000-078B  The Floating Potential Probe released from the ISS on 8 
    November 2005 is due to decay within the next day or so.
    With an inclination of 51.6 degrees and a number of daylight passes 
    including some very close to predicted decay  (I cannot specify the time in 
    here owing to SpaceTrack restrictions, but the information that it is 
    decaying is publicly available)  it would be advisable to keep a lookout in 
    this region.    Its dimensions are 1m by 1m  by 1m.
