I scanned for the 4 previously mentioned objects at 1x but nothing was seen
so i used my 10x50s and picked up one object travelling along the projected
track. I can't give a definate mag of the object but it was easy to see with
the 10x50s and invisible at 1x under the viewing conditions. At 06:47:59 27
May UTC +/- 2 sec it was at Az 280 degrees at an elevation of 65 degrees
approx. By my estimates this object was #25759 99029D but this is only a
guess on my part. I didn't see any other objects following it as i
concentrated more on this object. 

My thanks to Ron Lee for posting these elsets, even though i'm not in the UK :)
