    The following rough elements closely fit Daniel Deak's single position of an
    UNID observed on 2007 July 22 UTC:
    and the two positions that I extracted from Babak A. Tafreshi images of the
    propellant dump on June 15 UTC.
    1 70000U          07166.77466843  .00000000  00000-0  00000-0 0    05
    2 70000  61.4726  47.1740 0551647 203.5412 162.4100 13.68282431    05
    They also agree with Daniel's observation that the object had just passed
    Predicted times should be accurate to within a few minutes; track errors are
    likely to be at least several degrees, depending upon elevation.
    Best to search with the unaided eye on high elevation passes, or wide field
    binoculars at lower elevations.
