I can confirm the identification for the third object as being USA 276 that
was exactly on time according to Calsky ephemeris (TLE epoch: 17155.10977510
).

The second object had an appulse to Alpha CrB at 21h31m28.5s TU. It passed
69 seconds behind the first one.

If the first object was C then it was 1m40s ahead of Calsky ephemeris for
object C.
If the second object was B then it was 1m16s ahead of Calsky ephemeris for
object B.
(TLE epoch17155.01970257)
