    Good conditions though a bit windy.

    Notes:
    ------
    Continued the search for NOSS 3 C/D [11731/80019C and 11732/80019D]
    and NOSS 2 A/E [10502/77112A and 10544/77112E]. This time both pairs
    had much better passes.
    (1) The 10502 plane was monitored between 22:19:50UT and 22:25:20UT,
        with 10502 predicted to pass at 22:23:35UT. Two objects, 99030 and
        99031, were seen, making the identification difficult. Object
        99030 matches 10502 better in time, but 99031 matches better in
        position.  I suspect 99030 is NOSS 2 (D) [10529/77112D], last seen
        60 days ago, with 99031 being NOSS 2 (A).
    (2) Next, I monitored the 10544 plane from 22:25:50UT to 22:36:20UT,
        with 10544 predicted at 22:32UT. Nothing was seen in a 7.2x5.3deg
        field of view centered on the predicted position.
    (3) The planes of 11731 and 11732 were monitored from 23:12:50UT to
        23:21:20UT and from 23:23:20UT to 23:38:20UT. 11731 was seen, but
        11732 not. The latter was predicted at 23:31UT with a very similar
        phase angle and distance as 11731. Either it is faint or off in
        time and/or position.
