    Hello list,
    Aerospace lists 2 upcoming reentries for 10th and 11th FEB 2009:
    In Madrid, Spain I have a chance to see both. I am looking for newer 
    predictions, as the Aerospace ones are from the 6th of February.
    I tried with Calsky. However it lists only the decay of the second 
    Its elements age is 0,1 days old, so I suppose that the prediction is 
    better. Am I wrong? Are the uncertainties lower than the one of the 
    Aerospace prediction?
    And a newbie question. Both orbits are very exccentric. So I suppose 
    that certain parts of the groundtrack will have more probability to be 
    the place of the decay (at the perigee) or not? Is it possible to 
    calculate that perigee groundpoints for the orbit?
    Thank you very much,
    Paco Ocaņa
