    06057A was about 0.5 s early relative 3.2 day old elements. Position is a fairly
    distant appulse, so not very accurate. Elevation was about 12 deg, and phase
    angle near 1.5 radians. I followed for several more minutes, but it passed no
    visible reference stars. Sky condition was worse than on the previous morning,
    when it failed to appear; apparently it was in an unfavourable orientation to
    reflect much light in my direction.
    
    Sky condition improved considerably for 95066A and 07027A,C.
    
    95066A was on-time relative 2.3 day old elements.
    
    07027A and C were about on time and track. I had difficulty seeing 07027C as it
    passed between a faint, close pair of stars for my final observation, so
    position may be less accurate than stated.
