Epoch year - 02155.77474453 = 2002
Epoch day - 02155.77474453 = 155.7747
Inclination = 51.6356
RA Asc. Node = 115.3170
Eccentricity = 0006498 - enter as 0.000650
Arg. of Perigee = 150.8378
Mean Anomaly = 281.1957
Mean Motion = 15.60410749
** Round the entries
as needed. You will need to truncate and/or
round up some of the numbers to fit them in the Autostar.
