     NOTES:
     ------
    (1) Processing the observations from the 9th July 2013 is trying my
         sanity but hopefully the end is in sight. Herewith labours from
        today.
     
     (2) DSCS 3-12 was at extreme edge of frame in one image but happy with
        ident and position.
     
     (3) Object called 28117 UFO-F11 is a bit of a mystery - same problem as
        when I last saw it. Should have two objects in the area, the other
        being DSP F22. UFO F11 is an "easier" object than DSP F22 but only
        one object seen. If UFO F11 it is a little off track, but DSP F22
        falls on the track ... so is it UFO F12 or DSP F22. If its DSP F22
        then where is UFO F11 - has it moved?
     
    (4) Three "unknowns" seen at different times but suspect all the same object.
     
     (5) 90087 seen by accident but confident of ident - pretty object
     
     (6) Still have the "Strays" to report but want to go through idents once
        more before reporting as a few are misidentified when clusters of
        satellites exist - ( which is which)
     
     (7) For Molniya readers attach a picture of the unknown .
     
     
     Cheers
     Greg
