Hi all,

I have posted a blog post with my analysis of the 2014-049C CZ-4B r/b re-entry
over the Atlantic on May 27:

This includes some visualizations.

Like Ted, I have used GMAT to model the final re-entry trajectory. Grosso mode
the results of Ted and me agree. Differences are due to slightly different
choices of starting parameters.

My positions tend to be slightly more north, and slightly lower in altitude,
than Ted's
