    The file's maintainer has added what I was calling "UNID A" 
    to the mccants file as object cat# 90007, desig. 00653A.  For 
    the few who might not yet know, the mccants file includes 
    almost 1500 objects of highest or widest interest to visual
    satellite observers.  If you see an UNID LEO, the chances 
    are very good that it will be in the mccants file, which I 
    believe is less than one-fifth of the size of files with 
    data for all of the over 8,000 objects for which data are 
    available.  Here just some of the downloading sites for this 
    file:

    Our weather turned cloudy and rainy beginning Thursday and
    may continue so for two or three or four or more nights....
    
    The sci.astro.satellites.visual-observe newsgroup today on
    my provider's server has a few dozen messages.  For those
    with Web access and for whom it's not on their ISP's news 
    host, it's available via some Web sites.  A while back I 
    made up a small Web page explaining various ways to access 
    it:
