    Can someone please tell me at what altitude an orbiting satellite would
    likely begin decaying?
    I do understand there are many variables involved, but generally speaking
    how high?
    Yesterday I noticed a pass prediction at for Cosmos 955
    Rocket 10363 (1977-091-B) had an orbit of 277 x 287 km.  Are his days
    PS. Clouds moved in before the pass :-(
