Two UNID's were captured. UNID 1 is geostationary and close to USA 155
(00-080A): this is likely the same object earlier reported by Sergey Guryanov in 
May:

...and then targetted by me using the Warrumbungle telescope that same month:

It is very bright, like a Mentor. Approximate orbit from the 17 Aug observations:
