    US Spacecom issued a predicted decay time of Feb 1, 06:13 UT +- 6 hours
    at 00:01 UT Feb 1. It got onto OIG about 2 hours later. Next prediction is
    2 hours before decay, that should get posted about decay time.
    Alan Pickup's last prediction is for decay at 05:45UT, so they are converging.
    Note that US Spacecom's position for 15 minutes before decay is 34.5S, 28.5E
    which is near Capetown , South Africa. At that point in its orbit its 
    moving N-S in the early morning. Heads up Greg!!
    To have a chance to see it in Australia it will have to stay in orbit till
    around 9:30UT .
