    I have noticed the following sat in the oig's geo sat elements.
    SYNCOM 1
    1 00553U 63004A   77069.11186343 -.00000050 +00000-0 +00000-0 0 00056
    2 00553 033.5060 020.0500 0337500 270.6300 085.5000 01.00948389000106
    I read that after it fired it apogee motor, that they lost contact with it. 
    So were could it be. I was just wondering becaue I read that they, could track a basketball at the
    distance of where the geo sat's orbit. That sat was bigger than a basketball, and so far they
    haven't found it. And today's technology is better then what they had when the launched it. 
    Then there is other geo sat's that they appear to have lost.
