    On another mailing list there was a message about a recently 
    discovered near-earth object, 2001 DO47 (earlier called ss994).  
    It was listed at the Minor Planet Center (observations and 
    orbital elements):

    Another mailing-list message a day or so later reported that 
    they had determined that it's the spacecraft WIND.  Takes a 
    pretty good scope to see it, at magnitude +16 and soon getting 
    fainter.  I haven't found any news site story about it yet, 
    although I haven't searched hard for it again tonight.
