    I remember it. But if I were AFRL, probably I would yet try Shijian 5 :-)
    
    I added four more possible easy-to-access targets for XSS-11:
    
    05556  1971-087B  THOR BURNER 2 R/B
    07219  1974-015B  THOR BURNER 2A R/B
    12553  1981-059A  NOAA-7
    20788  1990-081A  FENGYUN 1B
    
    without checking the no-elements-available satellites.
    
    Right now NOAA-12 seems the easiest of all objects but of course
    orbital planes will migrate something with time.
