    For the record, here is the latest elset for ASCA:
    ASTRO D (ASUKA)
    1 22521U 93011A   00203.23463644  .00058243  00000-0  17200-2 0  2462
    2 22521  31.0976 161.4333 0029015  22.2805 337.9097 15.33279140408495
    
    Its orbit is similar to the Hubble.  Tomorrow evening in the 
    Baltimore-Washington area it will pass under Antares at 21:48 EDT (01:48 UTC 
    23 July).  Locations to the south and west should have a similar or better 
    view during subsequent passes.
    
    Cheers
