    96-72A (USA 129) is rapidly disappearing from northern skies.  After a
    spell of very wet weather the clouds cleared last night, and despite a
    brilliant Full Moon I was able to glimpse 96-72A setting at about 9
    degrees elevation in the north.  After 9 days it was running about 0.2
    mins early.  I've computed an orbit using 7 observations made from the
    UK between October 31 and November 12 hoping that our fellow observers
    in the southern hemisphere will be able to pick it up.
    
    David.
