1998-046J (25421) PEGASUS R/B: 
OIG (SPACECOM) announced the decay at
            January 4,  22:53 UTC  +/- 59 minutes  (5.2N, 278.1E)
This agrees excellent with Alans and my own prediction.

1998-066F (25532) DELTA 2 R/B:
With the prediction  January 7, 06:06 UTC  +/- 01 days  SpaceCom released
a more realistic estimate as before.
MPM shows with the ELSETs from 99004.728.. to 99005.284... a decay at
            January 7, 05:56 UTC  +/- 03 hours
We should not overestimate the small window. It reflects only the
consistent decay behavior in the last 12 hours.

1970-085A (04583) METEOR 1-6:
The new SpaceCom prediction  January 8, 13:02 UTC  +/- 02 days
seems somewhat late. MPM shows with the ELSETs 99004.204... to 99005.311
a decay at                   January 8,  05:56 UTC +/- 03 hours   

1991-017B (21148) TITAN 4 R/B:
SpaceCom predicts now  January 8, 23:47 UTC +/- 02 days 
MPM shows              January 8  17:29 UTC +/- 06 hours
