The following elements are based on observations by Hannes Pieterse, Deon van Rooyen and Greg Roberts:

OTV 4                                                    312 X 325 km
1 40651U 15025A   15147.67925093  .00012385  00000-0  50000-4 0    09
2 40651  38.0218 293.0754 0009791 318.7509  41.2539 15.85173461    04
Arc 20150525.7-0527.72 WRMS resid 0.012 totl 0.010 xtrk

The eccentricity and rate of decay will remain guesses until the arc grows long enough to trust the results.

Congratulations to Greg and his team on their successful effort to rapidly discover OTV 4 in orbit.
