The Molczan elsets for 950520 still have the 94286. epoch
for #15423 84-122 A.

Last fall, there were rumours that this KH 11-6 was taken down from its
orbit to decay.

To my knowledge, they were neither confirmed nor disproved.

NASA SatSit still says "No elements available"

Ted, could you give more facts about your observation and/or prediction to
help analysis/identification ?
