    A few days ago,  CSS detected this object a few arcminutes
off prediction.  I hoped I could chase down state vectors for
it (the ftp site upon which I relied has gone dead) or that
somebody else would get it,  resulting in an orbit good enough
to keep track of it before it ended up on NEOCP.

    Neither happened;  instead,  (D29) Purple Mountain got it,
and three European stations got follow-up.  On the bright side,
we have good enough data that we won't lose track of it for
some time.
