    Observations taken during the evening of January 13, 2014. The bright
    moon was up but the transparancy of the sky was perfect.

    Setup: Watec 902H2 video, 50mm F/1.8, NTP, Nexstar SLT mount
    IOD format: http://www.satobs.org/position/IODformat.html
    COSPAR 4171: 52.8344N, 6.3785E, 10m (WGS84)

    NOTES:
    ------
    1) This faint object does not match anything we know. A circular orbit
       gives the following elements:
    
    1 99088U 14513A   14013.72413610  .00000000  00000-0  50000-4 0    03
    2 99088  90.0255  32.1630 0000000   0.0000  53.9839 13.09345796    06
    
       The 13.09 revs/day mean motion puts it at 1225 km altitude. This
       altitude and the 90 deg inclination match the values of USA 225
       [37364/11006A] that were reported to the UN:
       http://satobs.org/seesat/Feb-2012/0072.html. My guess is that this
       is USA 225.
