    Spacetrack has updated, the tle's for last night's proton rocket launch.
    Object A as it's called, is one of my favorite object's = APT ( additional prollant tank )
    It's got a high apogee, but be child's play to see. I observed one the other day at over 20000 km,
    easy to see.
    Object B and C, are the satellite and upper stage.
    I wait for them to fix the designations, so the satellite has the A designation, and the apt has
    the C designation.
