The updated orbits below are based on observations by Leo Barhorst, Paul
Camilleri and Marco Langbroek.


NOSS 3-8 (A)                                           1010 x 1203 km
1 42058U 17011A   17070.33527839 0.00000000  00000-0  00000+0 0    06
2 42058  63.4560 126.4658 0128694 179.4388 180.6804 13.40765572    04

rms 0.03               From 17 observations March 10.01 - March 11.40


NOSS 3-8 (B)                                           1009 x 1204 km
1 42065U 17011B   17070.33503138 0.00000000  00000-0  00000+0 0    00
2 42065  63.4482 126.3776 0129989 179.0050 181.1257 13.40716352    05

rms 0.03               from 18 observations March 10.01 - March 11.40


The separation at epoch time of the above elsets was 149 km, so the decrease in
distance between objects A and B is continuing. If this trend continues the two
objects should reach 45 km separation at about March 16 (if NOSS 3-7 is to go
by, they will then stabilize at this distance).
