    How does a 1962 launched Delta R/B - a "B" object - suddenly appear 38 years 
    later as a newly catalogued object with a 1970 epoch?  Does anyone have any 
    info on this launch?  With an apogee of 96,500 km and a perigee of about 2000 
    km it would seem to be a challenging object to observe.
