    Notes:
    -------
    
    (1) Dont find a match for this in my element database so could be another
        unknown in a low inclination orbit -moving fairly slowly so probably 
    in
        elliptical orbit.
    
    (2) Have a lot of strays to report but will do tomorrow- Im too tired now
        after measuring today for about 8 hours ... and still to do 
    predictions
        for tonight.
    
    Cheers
    Greg
