With additional Mir debris beiing catalogued today by USSPACECOM, I was able
to make a new list of identifications of my June 15 observation.(times are UT)


22h37m33.5s     86-17KQ/23897   varying and bright, confirmed, 0.55s late     
22h37m55.9s     86-17KU/23901   varying and bright, confirmed, -1.1s early
22h40m23.3s     86-17KP/23896   varying and bright, confirmed, -0.7s early
22h40m48.3s     86-17LE/23918   0.66s early    
22h41m49.7s     86-17KL/23892   0.23s early
22h41m56.1s     86-17KZ/23911   0.12s early
22h42m11.8s     86-17LC/23914   previously thought to be 86-17KX, 1.87 late
22h42m12.7s     86-17LA/23912   1.73s late, previously thought to be nothing(!)
22h43m17.1s     to be identified: could be 86-17KY or fragment to be catalogued
22h43m31.8s     to be identified: could be 86-17KY or fragment to be catalogued
22h43m33.7s     to be identified: could be 86-17KY or fragment to be catalogued
22h43m52.6s     86-17A/16609, Mir, mag -2
22h44m10.1s     Surprisingly, I could not identify this fragment, it was
rather bright.
                The only candidate for this object is 86-17JV/23783(then it
was 34.32s                  early).  Could also be a fragment yet to be
catalogued.

On June 16 I made also some timings of Mir debris but they haven't been
identified yet.
Maybe OIG will come out with some new fragments.
