    Relatively good conditions for the first observations of 2013. Thin
    scattered clouds obscured the passes of only a few objects.

    NOTES:
    ------
    (1) A 10s flare of an unknown object (99040) was captured on two
        frames. Fitting a circular orbit two both observations indicates
        it is sun synchronous.
    
    1 99040U          13004.71276843  .00000000  00000-0  50000-4 0    00

        Mike McCants reported off list that this object connects to the
        earlier unknown I observed on December 15 (99039/12850A:
        http://www.satobs.org/seesat/Dec-2012/0151.html); with a little
        luck the object will be seen again to further constrain the orbit.
