    Good morning
    
    Ive had a few queries about the matches to satellites of objects mentioned
    in the ESA REPORT#10 and, from information that can be found on the
    internet with a little searching, Ive compiled the following table. Maybe it
    will inspire others to observe these objects. I cannot claim any originality
    in these identifications and would welcome comments/corrections.
    
    Cheers
    Greg

    (1) As can be seen there are quite a few major objects - denoted by XXXXXX
        in the 4th column which are not in CLASSIFIED.TLE. I personally feel
        that these objects should be observed and added .They are not difficult
        objects.
    
    (2) Whilst Peter Wakelin and myself are doing a good job of keeping tabs
        on high altitude satellites in our trackable area, a large number of
        the above objects are below our horizon. It is unfortunate that no
        serious amateur effort is made from anywhere else to observe these
        objects - many of the objects are in drifting orbits which mean that
        in the course of time they will do a complete trip around the Clarke
        belt, so whilst out of range to Peter or myself they are not tracked.
        Is it too much of a challenge for other observers :-))
