    The aux motor 22925 is rapidly decaying according to Alan and will likely
    not survive past 12/22/00. If anyone can observe this object for optical
    characteristics prior to its decay and email that info to me, I would
    appreciate it. The slant range is unfavorable from here for the next weeks
    and I am not sure if it will be possible to observe it at ranges greater
    than  2500 km (1600 miles) without a fairly large instrument and very dark
    skies. This object underwent a minor explosion on 9/7/00 but the object
    should be generally intact. Unless the object is rapidly flashing,
    observation should be continuous over at least a 2 minute interval.
    
    thanks,
    Paul
