NOTES:
------
(1) Prime purpose was to do an orbital plane scan for USA 186 which
     was not seen during observing session 22 Dec 2015 so had moved.
     Satellite located with no problems.

(2) All other satellites were "accidentally seen" as they intersected
     the orbital plane. Approximately 30 satellites seen and still
     being measured. Above are the ones already completed.

Cheers
Greg
