IGS 6?:
97813 11 050A   4353 G 20150428004152250 17 75 1251396+523530 56

This UNID in a LEO orbit was captured in Draco:

00000 15 000X   4353 G 20150427234622250 17 75 1742357+537520 56

-------------------------------------------------------------------------


Captured during a 1.5 hour post-midnight photographic planar hunt for USA 224 
(11-002A), which was not observed. The sky was very clear.

The first object 97813 is likely one of the IGS objects, tentatively IGS 6 
(11-050A).

The second object is a surprise UNID crossing through the head of Draco, 
captured on one image only. Looks to be an object in a 57 degree LEO orbit:

circular fit:
1 00000U 15000X   15117.99065162 0.00000073  00000-0  50000-4 0    01
2 00000  56.9633 161.4441 0004457 325.8565 107.3520 14.54271464    05
