1998-074C (25579) CZ-2 R/B :

The latest OIG (SpaceCom) prediction - prepared Jan 20, 10:20 UTC - shows a decay 
at           16:43 UTC +/- 04 hours  (24.4S, 169.9)
My last ELSETs - 99020.3344... and 99020.3954.... - shows with MPM :
             16:46 UTC +/- 60 minutes  (5.3S, 169.9E)
This is on an ascending pass around perigee.The possiblity for an additional
orbit is greater then for an earlier decay.
