NOTES:
-------
(1)Did plane scan for USA 186 #28888 last seen 58 days ago. I
    find no obvious match to this object which was around mag +3.5
    and correct track angle.

(2)Approx 25 other satellites seen during plane scan - will check
    all but will only report later if anything of real interest.

Cheers
Greg
