    This was the NOSS 3-4 (A) and (C) pair.

    Yes.

    It is object 39266 (13-055B) or 39271 (13-055G).
    They are both in the same place.

    I would assume that this object was the Cassiope payload.  All of the
    payloads are pretty close together, but the others should be much
    fainter than this primary payload.
