On the 23rd I also imaged the objects from the VS09 launch.
Space-Track lists three, as of yet unidentified objects; 40128
(14-050A), 40129 (14-050B) and 40130 (14-050C). Only object 40130 was
seen. It was varying in brightness, which suggests it may be tumbling.
The other two objects were too faint to register on the 10s images. It
is not clear if Kevin saw the same object.

Here is an animated gif of five 10s exposures:
