As I live in eastern Canada I am following this decay with interest.
Allan Pickup's last post puzzles me a bit. Satspy 2.5 using his latest
elements shows 25072 making a pass in my northern sky at 02:53 local (6:53
UT). Is there no chance for decay that orbit? The sky is clear and I'll post
at 0700 UT with the observation.
