Another good pass on the East Coast USA in FN42 ... Downloaded two images
and a really good long recording at 1822 UTC 59 degree elevation.

There are at least a few more days from an orbital standpoint, and so far
the electronics are holding up. BOTE calculation gives a descent rate
approaching 5 km/day, and rapidly increasing.
Just remember that as a practical matter it will be impossible to have Keps
with the accuracy we are use to having, because they are literally changing
significantly from orbit to orbit. Leave a wide window on the window. ;)
