    SPACECOM'S  FINAL REPORT - prepared May 07, 04:13 UTC - shows the decay on
                      07 May, 03:14 UTC +/- 15 minutes  (13.0S, 16.4E)
    on a descending pass over Angola.
    MPM + REENTRY delivers with the last released ELSET 01127.113.... the decay on
                      07 May, 03:12 UTC +/- 11 minutes  (07.95S, 13.92E)
    on the same pass also over Angola.
    The decayer showed a very complex behavior possibly with one or two breakups. 
    SPACECOM'S 6 and 2 HOURS BEFORE DECAY messages predicted a decay around 
    00:32 UTC. I suppose it was also a surprise for the SPACECOM people to monitor
    the object after this time again.
