In reply to Philip Chien's posting, here are the facts as I remember
them after 34 years..

1965-27C and D were objects of similar appearance, mostly faint, but
flashing irregularly to naked eye visibility.  The word was that they
were two halves of a fairing made of plastic, with a very low radar RCS.
I believe that they were both spotted by amateurs before NORAD found

Perhaps Russell Eberst can confirm this.
