    Kevin, the angular velocity discounts 03035 which is near geo,
    and hence doing 0.25 degrees/minute relative to stars.
    In the message that Walter nissen posted Henk Bulder states the timing errors
    are + or - 1 second. As he gives positions to better than an arc minute,
    I dont think  repoer accuracy is a problem
    I get a match with 75 91A , an old geosat, but the angular velocity is too
    high, and the time and position offsets too large.
    Astron and its rocket can be discarded as they arent in right spot and their
    angular velocity is much less than 0.5 degrees/minute.
