    I have updated my Decay Watch page at
                http://www.wingar.demon.co.uk/satevo/dkwatch/
    
    #23209 = 94- 50 G = Cosmos 2287 aux motor
    
    This decayed more quickly than I expected. Final analyses:
       SpaceCom: Jul 10 16:14 +-31m       41.3 S   153.5 W
       SatEvo:   Jul 10 15:53 -20+40m     56.4 S   103.1 E
    
    The final elset...
    C 2287 aux motor                                 330 x 95 km
    1 23209U 94050G   00192.62084140  .88212803  19518+1  58656-3 0 94792
    2 23209  63.8901  43.7170 0178190 213.4286 145.4340 16.22761720 96032
    ...shows it running almost 8 min early against yesterday's prediction. I
    have this decaying a little beyond perigee on this orbit, over the
    Southern Ocean to the SSW of Australia as it approached southern apex.
