I need help identifying these three objects, chance captures during an asteroid 
survey with the 0.60-m Schmidt telescope of Piszkéstetö, HU (MPC 461):

object 1
99991 00 000X   9461 G 20160304221418000 17 75 1140384-056908 56

object 2
99992 00 000Y   9461 G 20160304221218000 17 75 1140582-057090 56

object 3
99993 00 000Z   9461 G 20160304222118000 17 75 1140317-057886 56

0.60-meter F/3 Schmidt + CCD + Astrometrica software + UCAC4
Piszkéstetö Stn. (Konkoly Obs.). (MPC 461), Hungary
47.91754 N,  19.89365 E, 938 m

I suspect, but am not sure, that the 3rd object is the classified objects DSCS 
3-5 r2 (92-006C, #21877). It is the brightest of the three, and showing a very 
rapid flashing behaviour.

Objects 1 and 2 were much fainter and show no flashing. I have no idea what they 
are.

Object 1 seems to "fade in" and the trail start is not very reliable, hence why 
I only give the trail end above. I measured this for the trail start, but it is 
very unreliable:

99991 00 000X   9461 G 20160304221218000 17 75 1139247-056227 56

The other only had one end measurable, as the trails entered or left the FOV.

They all move in more or less the same track (especially objects 1 and 2 seem to 
be in a very similar path), objects 1 and 2 rather close together within 2-3 
minutes of each other, object 3 following 10 minutes later.
