    This probably is due to maneuvers. The NOSS 3-3, 3-5 and 3-6 objects
    have been repositioning with respect to NOSS 3-2 and 3-4. The NOSS 3-6
    pair decreased their mean motion to match it with those of 3-2 and 3-4
    around January 13. The last observation of NOSS 3-5A indicated it had
    increased its mean motion. Since NOSS 3-5C was not observed then its
    elements were not updated so the present elements do probably not
    represent reality. Most likely both are still a pair and one or a few
    minutes early.
