    Hi All
    
    Some high adventure on the starry seas last night!  USA 161 was likely 
    observed!

    I setup to run some bracketed obs around the latest elset guesses from 
    Ted M. on USA 161.  ~20minutes early a likely candidate was observed.  I 
    noted it by seeing a naked eye flash under Menkalinan which would have 
    been where USA161 should have been if running early according to Ted's 
    elsets...
    
    I recovered the likely originator and it shared similar optic 
    characteristics as USA224 even the single flash!  No other takers on the 
    track per SpaceTrack and Classified TLEs for the day...
