NOTES:
------
(1) Mike has identified the unknown reported yesterday as
     probably NOSS 8(A) last observed over a year ago.

(2) Re OTV4 - I used a new plane scan program and I have since
     found I made a mistake so I was actually scanning far enough
     from the correct plane scan that I probably missed OTV4, so
     the status of this satellites remains LOST but probably still
     in orbit.

    I will attempt a proper scan as soon as the bad weather clears.

Cheers
Greg
