Notes :

1-Also observed on Jan. 30 but without positional measurements :

  #11511, 79078 B, Cosmos 1125 r
  #25561, 98071 B, SWAS Pegasus r : observed while looking for Lacrosse 2,
          rapid flasher (about 2 sec. period) mag 7 to 9, was at 1200 km range

2-After 2 unsuccessful attempts to see Lacrosse 2 on Jan. 30, I finally made it
  on the 31st from 23:05:30 to 23:08 UTC. It was on time at mag 2 on an overhead
  pass but I got lost among the stars so I could not make a valid positional
  measurement.

3-For the NOSS 2-2 trio, I observed the three at mag 7.5. The above data is for
  the "C" satellite.
