    Derek Breit and Scott Campbell made observations used in one or more of the
    following orbit determinations.
    
    The line following each element set states the duration of the underlying
    observational period, or "arc", and the WRMS (weighted average root mean square)
    residuals between the orbit and the observations; the smaller the value, the
    better.

    The following are based on only two points each, so residuals, though small, are
    not meaningful.
