    Scott's 99113 UNID of 2012 Aug 04 UTC is the same object he reported as an UNID on Jul 29 UTC, which is the rocket body
    of SDS 2-4. The following elements fit both sets of observations:
    
    SDS 2-4 r2                                             303 X 14011 km
    1 23947U 96038C   12217.43822088  .00001152  00000-0  19340-3 0    01
    2 23947  55.3617 295.5213 5064056  29.2201 351.5218  5.51315209    09
    Arc 20120729.46-0804.45 WRMS resid 0.019 totl 0.012 xtrk
    
    The mean motion and rate of decay remain somewhat uncertain. A third observation in the near future would yield the
    correct values.
