    I have generated this point based upon Steve Newcomb's report that the object
    passed about 1.5 deg below Beta Draco at 01:16:10 UTC:
    28385 04 034B   8539 G 20040901011610000 17 25 1723319+532087 68 R
    It suggests that the mean motion may be around 6 revs/d, but it considerably
    degrades the residuals of any orbital solution.
    Time-stamped images or accurate descriptions that could extend/improve the arc
    would be appreciated.
