One more classified satellite identified (?) :
29658 06 060A   5919 G 20170317191314500 97 15 0404400+075030 39
29658 06 060A   5919 G 20170317191319500 97 15 0358180+090218 39
Unexpectedly (?) 4-5 s late on 1.0 day old elset.

This was in one of 79 images 18:53-19:28, trying to cover part of the
long-lost USA 179 rocket #28385. It was very close to its low perigee, but
I was restricted by the low altitude from my latitude, the early shadow
entry, bright twilight, and early fogs. I managed 15 minutes on 03-15, and
It may be more reasonable for observers in the southern hemisphere, where
it now it visible in the mornings at shadow exit arond 3900 km.

Total on 03-17 was 172 images, in 29 images 35 tracks of 16 objects, 4
classified and 3 still UNIDs.
