    At this moment we have seen the last 
    released ELSET with the epoch October 21,
    20:35:40 UTC and then silence.
    Why? Was it a special case of information
    policy by USSTRATCOM? And again why?
    We forecasters were cut off from final
    decay predictions. I hope we will see 
    some times later one or two ELSETs to verify
    their "final" final conclusion or give
    a more precise time and coords.
