NOTES:
----------
(1) Herewith balance of observations of "stray" satellites observed
     during plane scan for USA 186 on 25 Dec 2015

(2) Probably the most interesting is object 97012E #24778. When
     first observed thought it was EGP as similar appearance. However
     measuring showed it was DMSP 5D-2 F14 DEB. This is flashing
     rapidly - approximately three per second.

(3) GRACE 1 and GRACE 2 observed about 32 seconds apart =pretty.

Cheers
Greg
