After the launch of Meridian 9, it was noted that the Argument of 
Perigee was not the same as Meridian 8's or other garden variety molniya 
orbit missions.

It was initially thought that this could be the result of a reported 
Soyuz 2.1a third stage anomaly.  Further analysis reveals a different 
and perhaps more interesting story.

Hoping the community can help us understand this more.
