    This is what the Associated Press is reporting:
    I show a low elevation, predawn pass for Jos, Nigeria (9.9048 N, 8.8836 E) 
    for 7:01 UTC, 23 March in the NW. This would appear to be 0.5 orbit too late. 
     Assuming that the deorbit is delayed for a day how accurate would that 
    prediction be?  I have some family there and they would like to see the Mir 
    one last time.
