I did a photographic plane search for USA 245 (last seen 172 days ago) from
19:55 to 21:40 UT (March 23).

In images 341 and 342 (out of 538 images taken) I found a UNID that looks to be
a good candidate for USA 245.

Here is a search orbit to try to recover it tomorrow (allow for several minutes
uncertainty):

USA 245?

Earlier in the evening I observed the NOSS 3-8 duo: data will follow tomorrow.
