    And then there was one missing IGS:

    I'm making a leap of faith in my analysis ability and offering my own 
    identification of 99140 as IGS 7A r, 37955.  I used the 12261 epoch TLE 
    from Mike McCants and was able to make my observations fit it well with 
    little more than changing the Mean Anomaly.
    
    So that makes it the last of the IGS series to be recovered this season.

    I don't have an 'educated'guess here on 99141.  However, 99142 looks 
    interesting!

    This one I suspect is USA 161 as I poked the Argument of Perigee abit 
    and was able to get a decent fit to the 12229 epoch TLE of Mike McCants 
    and its the time of night I'd expect to see USA 161 where I stare.
