Hi there,

Regarding NOSS 2-3 Rk,  I spotted it or something on a similar
trajectory using the following elset from Mike's recent classfd.tle :

NOSS 2-3 Rk
1 23907U 96029B   98244.87653034  .00047000  00000-0  46095-3 0    01
2 23907  63.4326 158.6830 0052999 130.6928 229.3072 15.63830598    04

This is 28 days old so......

I had it running 9 secs ahead of Schedule if it was NOSS 2-3 Rk.
I observed it for about 80 seconds.  It was predicted to be visible
passing through
Aries but I never saw it there.  It came out of shadow nearer to
Cassiopeia.  It passed
about a degree from HR 285 ( or SAO 3816? is this the same star?)on a
line to Polaris.
I  recorded the obs as....

96029B 103849.6 230642.7+850136 3.0 5.0 s

...but can not ascertain any degree of accuracy.
