Starliner observations

Starliner supposedly had an off-nominal insertion, and it is unclear
if it is still in orbit, and if so, in what orbit. There is very
little hard data coming from the Boeing and NASA control centers.
Observers in the South of the US would have visibility at the end of
its first orbit, expected around 13:10UTC. Use TLEs from Marco
Langbroek from an earlier post
(http://www.satobs.org/seesat/Dec-2019/0074.html).

Starliner is likely to be in a very low orbit, so would be moving
across the sky at a higher rate than typical satellites.
