    Hi All
    
    I have a further possible obs of USA 116. Cloud cover was 95% and thick so
    I'm not claiming great accuracy. A lucky gap in the clouds just at the right
    place and time made obs possible for 15s.
    
    Object rose up through Pavo, east of Epsilon Pav. (at 15h 6m 46s UT) on a
    near vertical track slightly inclined to the west, shadow entry not observed
    because of clouds. This agrees well with search elset #70061 that Bjoern
    Gimle and George Lewis have been working on.
    
    # 70061 correcting CAPW and M using observation by Jim McManus.

    I've checked for other possible objects. Nothing close in position, time or
    direction.
