When I prepared to analyze USA 259 this morning, I overlooked Brad Young's observations of Jan 28 UTC. Combining them
with Peter Wakelin's observations of Jan 30 UTC reveals that the repeating ground track has been established:

USA 259                                               2152 X 38204 km

2 40344  62.8303 207.5579 6787998 266.8936  20.0093  2.00605856    04
Arc 20150128.05-0130.96 WRMS resid 0.003 totl 0.003 xtrk

My epoch 15030.74089866 TLE should be discarded.
