ISS Zarya (FGB) Orbital Data - Estimated

Below is the estimated State Vector and Keplerian Elements for 
Zarya -- the ISS FGB.  The vector data was computed from NASA 
Space Shuttle rendezvous data; the Keplerian Elements were 
computed from the vector.  

This file may be read by VEC2TLE version 9648 to update your 
Keplerian Elements text file.

Note that 99999 is a temporary catalog number.  Zarya will be  
assigned a permanent catalog number and international designator
when it is launched.

Launch scheduled: 1998-NOV-20 / 06:40 UTC

The following Keplerian elements were computed by VEC2TLE from this
vector, and the nominal launch time using a 0.5 drag multiplier:
