    Notes:
    ------
    Quite a few objects were seen which turned out to be hard to identify
    or significantly off from predictions. I have listed them here as
    unknowns here for the moment. A second opinion on these
    identifications would be greatly appreciated.
    (1) Unknown 99011 may be 35875/09050C, a Breeze-M tank in an 3.9
    revs/day eccentric orbit, seen near perigee. The published elements
    from the last couple of days differ quite a bit in predictions as to
    where it would be on the sky at the time of observation.
    (2) Unknown 99012 seems to match 38354/12029A launched about 10 hours earlier.
    (3) Unknown 99013 is a regular unknown that does not match anything listed.
    (4) Unknown 99014 matches 38351/12027D, debris from Falcon 9.
    (5) Unknowns 99015 and 99016 were in almost parallel tracks 6.5
    arcminutes apart with 99015 leading about 3.2s on 99016. Both were
    equal brightness, with 99015 showing a flare. Unknown 99016 seems to
    match 37942/11072B, though with the tracks so close I am not certain.
    Either way, only one of the two objects appears catalogued.
