What are NORAD tracking?

Until NORAD have sorted themselves out, I suggest you treat any new
Keplers for Object 26609 with great respect.

Day 337 Keplers for this object showed AOS at this QTH as 05:33utc. In
fact actual AOS was at 07:20utc. 

When the spacecraft telemetry was showing MA 14, which tallied with
Element set #4, Day 337 was showing MA 50.

Please note, this is not a criticism of NORAD, there's a lot of stuff
flying around up there and it must be difficult to identify it all.
