    Hi Kate,
    As collector of the PPAS observations (since August 1st, 2000) I have
    processed the observations reported since that day and some observations
    from the interval January - July 2000. None of the objects was mentioned.
    So if there were observations of these objects, they had not been reported
    to the PPAS email address.
    My question: have these objects a special behaviour that makes them
    interesting for photometric observations?
    Regards.. Bram Dorreman.. Collector of PPAS observations.
