    A group of five satellites observed on the 16th took a bit
    of sorting out.  Spacetrack had only 3 objects in the area.
    A fourth was, as expected, 09-01B, USA 202r but the 5th is
    now believed to be PAN, 09-47A.

    90084 / 09-710A, a faint object in a ~54h orbit, was found at
    the first attempt.  Observed with a fixed camera at a time
    when the apparent angular speed was lowest, it was quite easy
    to spot, aided by ~20s brightenings to mag ~12.
