    Hello All,
    Though this is off topic. I thought many may benefit with knowledge which
    objects have been re-cataloged (permanently?) by USSPACECOM in recent
    I would like to post one item more or less per day.  The total count of
    recats is around 70 objects, but I'll provide only the significant ones
    which have no relationship to other object.
    Some recats are interesting in that the country ownership of the object
    had changed (along with the cospar) after several years. Please note I'm
    not saying which is the correct entry for stated NORAD number. You will
    have to be the judge.
    Each post, using available electronic Satellite Situation Reports, will
    show the 'earliest' and last record of original object; the first and
    current report of new object; and the respective TLEs at time of changed
    designation if on hand. If there are any objections or questions please
    contact me directly.
