    An obvious explanation, looking at all published
    elsets, is that the identities of the C and D objects
    were switched between 06121.9 and 06122.6
    
    Before that, the two debris objects
    were in the lower 102.7 degree orbit.
    
    All rocket elsets 06119.0 - 06121.9 AND the D
    elset 06122.7 match Kevin's video very well.
