Pierre Neirinck produced these elements, based on observations by himself,
Russell Eberst and Alberto Rango, between 15 and 26 July UTC:

USA 116         15.0  3.0  0.0  5.1 v
1 23728U 95066  A 99207.98601250  .00015555  00000-0  34162-3 0  2326
2 23728  97.8760 319.6786 0433061 170.9652 189.8398 14.82273004    05

USA 129         15.0  3.0  0.0  5.1 v
1 24680U 96072  A 99208.15505310  .00018021  00000-0  25140-3 0  3522

Also, for anyone who may be archiving these elements, Pierre advises that
his 96072A element set 351, which I posted yesterday, has been revised due
to the correction of a star position error:

USA 129         15.0  3.0  0.0  5.1 v
1 24680U 96072  A 99207.14239590  .00018162  00000-0  24933-3 0  3518
2 24680  97.8838 269.1598 0482113 325.1417  31.5890 14.82072805    22

Note that the orbit number is not really 2, as stated in the elset. In
public posts of Pierre's elements, the orbit number field is used to
distinguish among different versions of an element set number. So the above
is the 2nd version of elset 351. It is common for Pierre to produce 2 or 3
elset versions, before moving on to a new data set.
