    The Soyuz R/B 36362 2003-010-B from the latest Progress launch is due to 
    decay within a matter of a few hours.
    
    Just had a non-illuminated pass - commencing 1230 UTC- and no sign of any 
    decay at this location, but decay was not expected as it was predicted to be 
    at around 160 km altitude.
    
    It is quite possible that decay could occur on the next orbit but the pass 
    will be far too low elevation to be seen at this location.
