ANDE is under heavy drag.  So its element set gets out of date
in just a few days.  So it is going over earlier than
predictions.  Could be you are looking west, when it has alredy
past you and is to the east...

My keps were about 10 days old and they were late by 6 full
minutes.  Using them, I was looking west when it was
disappearing east.

This decay will increase until ANDE re-enters.

Just an idea.
