    Adding Brad Young's observations to those of Alberto Rango yields the following approximate orbit:
    
    OTV 3                                                    389 X 408 km
    1 39025U 12071A   13064.06332716  .00000000  00000-0  00000-0 0    05
    2 39025  43.5059 359.6315 0013999 120.4861 239.7394 15.56944992    03
    Arc 20130304.76-0305.08 WRMS resid 0.046 totl 0.037 xtrk
    
    Prediction time should be accurate to within several seconds per 24 h from epoch.
    
    The orbital altitude has been raised about 46 km. This is OTV 3's first substantial orbit change since launch.
