    Mike McCants has found that my obs of unknown 96127 was a well known:
    
    9 11  8  2  7  2.9  1 44.45 -11.31 2000 Unknown 090215 96127  96 627A  47 S

    are matched by:

    2 others tried to fool me while observing classfd.tle objects last night. Arabsat 1B (15825,85-48C) crossed "in front" of 25501 by 3 minutes and off track so it was easy to discern. Kosmos-2325 (23736,95-68C) was in the field with 96126, but at a steep angle to it, and faded back down to 10th magnitude after about 30 seconds.
    
    I finished seeing all the 09-59 objects. The debris is easy, slowly rolling it seems. Proba 2 is easy and steady. SMOS gave a great flare just as I found it last night. The r/b is bright but steady (so far). The ANDE spheres were both 9 mag and steady in the short time I observed them. The Skymeds have been flaring again.
