    Has anyone seen OTV3 (39025 12-071A) recently?  I saw it last week
    and it appeared some 20-30 seconds earlier than the TLE of epoch
    13007.974 would
    indicate. It passed essentially where expected in the sky and at apparent
    +2 was as bright as expected. Unfortunately, I was ill prepared to better
    time its
    pass, but I'm certain it was early.  I haven't seen any more recent TLE
    and am
    wondering if perhaps it has maneuvered in the last week?
    Clear and dark skies!
