    Observation arc 2004 Mar 18.85 - 21.91 UTC:
    
    USA 129         15.0  3.0  0.0  5.3 v
    1 24680U 96072A   04081.89759821  .00021469  00000-0  29440-3 0    03
    2 24680  97.9681 143.3795 0527686 175.5716 185.0447 14.72464577    06
    
    WRMS residuals = 0.016 deg
    
    The eccentricity appears to be a bit lower than I expected; as the arc grows,
    the elements are likely to flop around a bit, before settling down.
