    This is the first time we've spotted an ETBO this high.
(Multijunk,  with an apogee at 126000 km above the geocenter
and period of 2.39 days,  is now the runner-up,  followed by
a lot of one-day objects.)

    I can't link it to any recent objects.  I've computed TLEs
that may help us find it over the next few days,  or maybe
weeks.
