Dear Observers

I have recently observed a faint (mag +9 to +10), slow-moving satellite
which may be 96-38C, USA 125 r2.  Here are some morning telescopic
observations, and a preliminary orbit.  Although the orbit's somewhat
uncertain, I'm publishing it now because the satellite will shortly
become visible in the evening close to perigee (380km) for observers in
the US and Europe.
