The following objects had a jump in Mean Motion and * MIGHT * accelerate:
These objects need to be observed As Soon As Possible!
95- 12 B = 23527
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
The following object had a jump in Mean Motion and * HAVE * accelerated:
Is is flashing nicely.
92- 20 B = 21938
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
The following object had no jump in Mean Motion but has also ACCELERATED:
71-119 B = 05730, flashing period is about 3 seconds.
This Aureole rocket was seen flashing by Willy Verhaegen (see message of
Tristan Cools).  There was no jump in Mean Motion, only a increase of
the drag term (Mike McCants and Bjoern Gimle)
