    Hi All
    
    Report in chronological order.
    
    Started a search for the NOSS unid using Ted's search elsets.
    
                                                             553 X 1553 km
    1 70004U          11289.12432203  .00000309  00000-0  10000-3 0    08
    2 70004  63.3136 168.1108 0672928  63.2027 303.6210 13.55000000    03
    
    +/- 2 minutes of ~0220UTC, fair conditions with altocumulus clouds rolling in... NO OBS on track with 80% certainty based on clouds rolling through FOV.
    
    However, STSS Demo 1 passed through my field for a bonus obs:
    
    35937 09 052A   8049 P 20111019022118778 15 25 1333876+783611 37 S
    
    							 561 X 1581 km
    1 70003U          11289.12427941  .00000286  00000-0  10000-3 0    04
    2 70003  63.3140 168.1085 0684155  64.8554 302.1835 13.50000000    00
    
    +/- 2 minutes of ~0236UTC, good conditions with no interference from clouds. NO OBS on track, 100% certainty.
    
    However, scored another bonus set of obs of the flasher NOAA 12 and NOSS 4(E) crossing the FOV in rather spectacular fashion.
    
    13844 83 008E   8049 G 20111019023416814 15 25 1538043+690236 37 S

    1 70002U          11289.12423661  .00000266  00000-0  10000-3 0    06

    2 minutes before ~0253UTC NO OBS, Clouded out just prior to predicted pass through FOV and obs session terminated.
