    The object was in one of its invisible minima as it passed between my
    pre-selected reference stars; I was fortunate to observe a 0.1 deg appulse of a
    star before it passed from view:
    
    90019 03 790B   2701 F 20040928082107870 17 25 0607632-190401 97 R
    
    What these numbers mean: http://www.satobs.org/position/IODformat.html
    
    Site 2701: 43.68764 N, 79.39243 W, 230 m
    
    On the next pass, at 10:02 UTC, I saw it briefly through cloud, but there were
    no suitable reference stars.
    
    The following elset benefits from Kent Yeglin's obs of Sep 26 UTC (UNID at the
    time), and Alberto Rango's and my obs of Sep 28 UTC:
    
    03790B           0.0  0.0  0.0  3.5 v
    1 90019U 03790B   04272.32908457  .00483174  00000-0  54548-3 0    00
    2 90019  27.3180 341.3418 0811766 243.2116 108.3175 14.41843509    08
    Arc 2004 Sep 26.55 - 28.35, WRMS residuals = 0.028 deg
    
    The actual rate of decay is much less than the guess I used for my elset
    yesterday. The eccentricity of the above seems a bit too great.
