It appears that this object decayed at about June 11.91, shortly after
this final OIG element.
86- 17 KH
1 23889U 86017KH  96163.87277661  .99999999  12161-4  16650-1 0   280
2 23889  51.6505 148.7519 0006604 226.3419 149.4416 16.33182716  2135

Object #20042 = 89- 41 C (Ariane 44L R) decayed at about June 12.48, by
my calculation. OIG issued a flurry of four elsets for one of its later
revs, then fell silent on the object; here is one of them:
89041C  
1 20042U 89041C   96165.11963304  .86537125  00000-0  18350-2 0  6593
2 20042   6.4890 256.5035 0307805  83.9810 279.6003 15.83159499 42316

In the hope that this doesn't take as long to reach the SeeSat list...
