    This pair of ESA geomagnetic satellites are within arcseconds of 
each other,  and I don't know which one ATLAS got here.  The problem is 
that while all three observations were very close to the Cluster 
satellites,  the motions are discordant.  I think the first and last 
observations may be of one satellite,  and the second observation of the 
other satellite.

    I've submitted an ID for the object to MPC,  which may result in it 
being "not a minor planet"-ed.
