    I have updated my Decay Watch page with notices for three decayers, one 
    of which has yet to be predicted by SpaceCom. Here are summaries:

    Note: This enters eclipse while northbound near 56 deg N in the
    evening sky and leaves eclipse while southbound just S of the equator
    in he morning.

    Note: Eclipse entry occurs northbound near 23 deg N before dawn, but is
    shifting quite quickly southwards as the orbit precesses. Eclipse exit
    is northbound over the Arctic.
