The preliminary orbit for USA 161 is clearly improving: it was 0.8s late and
0.25 deg x-track with my elset 14153.01328328, 0.5s late and 0.20 deg x-track
with Ted's elset 14153.01326899, and 0.4s late and 0.4 deg x-track with Mike's
elset 14153.01326571.

Good 60 degree elevation pass. The satellite was well visible with the naked
eye, approx. mag +2. Fast moving, long trails on the image.

I have dropped positions from a third image as I suffered a "lazy thumb"with
that image (and indeed, the measurements came out slightly out of tune in delta
T with the rerst).

I am lagging behind with reporting on the other objects imaged on June 2 and 3.
Forthcoming.
