    Herewith PPAS observations made 26 Dec 2000. Note correction to the
    observation of 99- 61A on 25 Dec - it should read 93- 61A ( SPOT 3).
    
    These observations were made using my CoSaTrak system whilst scanning
    a lost satellite orbital plane. No effort was made to track the satellites
    so report is based on what was seen in the time it took to traverse the
    4.8 degree field of view of the CCD camera as seen on a video monitor.
