    I tried this night to spot WGS 4. I used Mike's integrated cogo tle to look for it (epoch 13089.471). Other unclassified nearby geosats (ST 2 [37606], CHINASAT 5A [25354] and KAZSAT 2 [37749]) were found where they should be according to last space-track's elsets while WGS 4 was about 0.2 deg Xtrack and 35 s late.
    
    WGS 2, Vortex 6 and WGS 4:

    Used CCD camera EVS VNC-753-H2 on 12cm refractor (FOV is 36'x27'). Captured frames onto the computer. Clock synced via NTP. Processed with ObsReduce. Determined magnitude in comparison with nearby stars.
