Hi Kevin,

I think it may be worth following this object; 
Mike's inttles show 14-43C / 40101 / ANGELS  to be in the vicinity.  I observed ANGELS to be very faint when it was lurking around its launch rocket for a year or more after launch three years ago.

Subject: Faint unid spotted


On Sept 24, I had noticed a faint unid, leading Intelsat 16.

I went looking for it last night, and it now trailing Intelsat 34.

So it's 
got a slow drift rate. Being so faint, I think it's a peice of debris.
