USA 245 (13-043A), if it made a manoeuvre after Russell's Sep 7 observations?

You observations match a USA 245-like sun-synchronous orbit:

1 79232U 13043A   14251.81215177 0.00024657  00000-0  27631-3 0    04
2 79232  97.9436 314.0605 0496636  67.6874  66.8444 14.82870273    04

rms 0.095

Orbital plane differs by about 1 degree in RAAN from the orbit USA 245 was last 
seen in. Apogee and perigee are similar but with perigee slightly raised a few km.
