A bit off topic and limited interest...

    Hello All,
    
    The USSPACECOM posting of 26558U/1962-051B sparked my interest as to how
    many
    other objects were discovered not cataloged. No complaint here. I rather
    have
    an object cataloged late than forever missed or swept under the rug. Even
    worst would be to re-number the entire SSR catalog to accommodate
    them...yuk!!
    
    Here are the top ten objects. 116 were found of which 25 were
    'victimized' by
    year rollover prior to actual release. Program output (here sorted in
    terms
    of cataloged object count) was restricted to publicized larger principle
    objects in Earth orbit.
