    Hello All,

    RE: Update on monthly changes of OIG/GSFC Satellite Situation Report
    Re-cataloged objects are those which the launch ID number has been
    assigned to a NORAD number designation _different_ than the original.
    Significant name changes are defined as those clearly not same object.
    In other cases, name is similar, but generally more precise in nature.
    Per current OIG/GSFC Satellite Situation Report release of June 30, 2000
    June 2000   41/06 & 41/05   O recatalog items / 1 name change
    The following listings are of discrepancies and/or corrections found in
    comparison of the Satellite Situation Reports June '00 v41#06 and
    May '00 v41#05  Note: No search made for launch/decay date conflicts.
    Comparison was restricted to the COSPAR (international launch item #).
    The 2nd item of each set is from current report.  O re-catalogs found.
    NORAD    NAME                       COSPAR      DECAYED    FLAG
