Observations obtained 'remotely' with the 0.61-m telescope of G68 Sierra Stars 
Observatory in California.

The satellite was 1.9 arcminutes from my previous elset 16191.51847818.

Updated elements (including obs by Paul Camilleri and me):

MUOS 5                                               15244 x 35702 km
1 41622U 16041A   16194.79141155 0.00000000  00000-0  00000+0 0    03
2 41622   9.8237 324.1559 3211487 179.1110 181.6468  1.52729055    01

rms   0.002                 from 19 observations Jul 4.99 - Jul 13.40

This is basically the same GTO orbit we have observed it in since July 3, so it 
still seems to be stranded.

If weather cooperates, I hope to get some more observations tonight, from Leiden.
