    Persona (08037A / 33272) has made the expected circularization manoeuvre,
    yielding a sun-synchronous orbit. It is in nearly a 29:2 resonance, which means
    that its ground track nearly repeats after 29 revolutions, which takes about 2
    days. Frequent repetition of ground tracks is a common orbital feature of
    imaging reconnaissance satellites.
