    Note: The latest elset shows this running 28 sec early against 
    yesterday's prediction. I estimate that it will decay over Antarctica 
    on the final predicted orbit, above. This rev takes it southbound in 
    daylight over Edinburgh, Scotland, at 12:36 UTC, then over W France 
    and E Spain.
