Walter,
       I thought I sent this yesterday, but I have no copy coming in,
and none in my outbox !

Here it goes (again?):



I may have identified your July 29 object, and one July 31:

I ran my July 12 OIG grbs.dat file (8226 elsets) through SkyMap.
There are a few candidates, allowing for >17 days of elset age. 

Can you be more specific about the angular speed and/or
angle of motion (from vertical) ?

I have your observation at az. 96.7, el. 43.2
My best candidate is culminating at 100.4, 43.9 at 08:56:25,
angle 88 (103 for C.1908), passing 0.5 degrees above the point
2 seconds after C.1908, at a speed of 41% of C.1908's :

#07857 ran 2 degrees above DMSP at 119 % speed, in parallell.
Magnitude +4.3 (SkyMap). I can't find a second object.

For Aug.1, I found three parallell objects within 3 degrees higher:
