Been hunting for MiTEx with the 0.51-m telescope of Warrumbungle (MPC Q65):
located MiTEx 1 as a faint object close to Mike's predicted INTTLES position.

Some 5 degrees northeast of MiTEx1, I bumped into a very bright UNID in what
appears to be a 5 degree inclined orbit and position around longitude 172-173
West over the mid-Pacific. It is much too bright to be MiTEx 2.

VERY approximate orbit for this object (MM set at 1.0027 rev/day):

UNID
1 00000U 00000X   15259.40577638 0.00000000  00000-0  00000+0 0    04

The SBS 6 rocket was captured as a stray.
