    Imaged by Gordon GARRADD at Siding Spring and a couple of images
    up on his website at http://members.ozemail.com.au/~loomberah/themis.htm
    
    The only available TLE for the THEMIS launch puts with a eccentric orbit puts
    it below Siding Spring Obs. horizon at 17:15 UT. The orbit is close to the
    one desired so so I think one can say its not that.
    Rob McNaught imaged it as well from SSO, so one may be able to get 
    enough positions
    to get an approximate orbit.
