The NASA.ALL Keps are issued and updated weekly, normally Friday, as they
have been for literally decades. The on line tracker widget gets Keps
directly, and so will be as up to date as Celestrak and Space Track. Two
different systems, and purposes, which is why there is a difference.
You will see a similar situation with ARISSat-1 as it slowly descends.
Which is a good chance to get another plug in for the Chicken Little

So here we are again, Amsat shows the ISS in the right spot but the keps it
gives out for automatic updates are around 6 minutes off again. I know about
the boosting and why they are off, just dont ubderstand WHY they are good on
the online tracker and not anything else?
