Mir debris catalogued probably continue beyond #23927U 86017LP -
I was searching for the first 20 numbers after #23907, which was
included in thirty.dat / thirty.tle / thirty.hd

With Tuesday's OIG elsets, Rob Matson's COLA.EXE predicts
a 2.9 km miss on June 22.

You can see that the separation between the two Zenith-2 rockets
changes by 58 km/rev., so the morning passes over USA on Jun.22
while they are coming closer, can be quite nice.
