Video observations taken during the evening of February 16,
2014. Conditions were excellent with a nice and transparant
sky. Scattered clouds rolled in when the moon started rising, but this
was around the end of the LEO window.

NOTES:
------
1) Three objects, most likely belonging to the Essaim quartet
   (2004-049C/D/E/F), were seen. Essaim [28497/04049F] was on track
   with the latest elements. The object Kevin saw on the 13th and
   early on the 16th gave a very brief flash; this is listed at
   99221/14544A. Then another unknown [99091/14547A] was seen having
   very similar flaring behaviour as 28497. It is unclear which of the
   three remaining Essaim objects these are. To securely identify them
   more observations over the coming days are required to pin down
   their present orbits. This should allow propagating them back in
   time.

   These are circular orbit estimates. In the case of 99221 I use
   Kevin's 5 observations from February 13 and 16 and have added my
   single point.
