    We've had a week or more of good weather (now terminated by more snow)
    Since Cees' observations on Mar 13 I have switched my photographic
    searches to his 99034 elset, and some IGS elsets with no luck.
    
    Except that going through the images the last couple of days I found
    several tracks which I didn't notice while capturing them.
    One track on Mar 15 matches the 13012 epoch elset for IGS 5A very well !
    This seems to be the only  IGS candidate in my pictures, though I
    still have four UNIDs to reduce or check before reporting.
