    Hi all,
    
    In one of my images with Lacrosse 4 (00-047A) of this evening, I noted a second 
    fainter trail. As I didn't see it visually, I cannot say which end is the start 
    or end. So The positions for this object are either:
    
    option 1:
    00000 99 999A   4353 G 20081222174527300 17 75 0312516+230970 56
    00000 99 999A   4353 G 20081222174537350 17 75 0319240+218870 56
    
    option 2:
    00000 99 999A   4353 G 20081222174527300 17 75 0319142+218870 56
    00000 99 999A   4353 G 20081222174537350 17 75 0312509+230970 56
    
    Option (1) is a set that is somewhat similar to predicted positions for the 
    Breeze-M tank (05-019A, 28661). It is close but the residuals appear just too 
    large: an approximately 0.6 degrees difference (of which about 0.25 degee, or 
    16', in cross-track. delta T = +3.4s), and my camera unit is really much more 
    accurate than that on other objects.
    
    The image (reduced reduction because of the file size) can be seen here:
