Just had a SPROUT pass that had an unobstructed LOS over the Pacific. It’s
LOS didn’t match any of the five objects currently list for that launch!
Here’s the calculated LOS vs. my observed:
(Using element set 3 for #39768)
Observed LOS: approximately 21:23:40 UTC
2014-029A LOS 21:29:34
2014-029B LOS 21:25:50
2014-029C LOS 21:24:23
2014-029D LOS 21:27:03
2014-029E LOS 21:25:50
So, it looks like there is at least one more object that hasn’t been added
to 2014-029 list yet.
It was transmitting CW this pass, but I was so busy manually aiming the
antenna and correcting for Doppler that I didn't capture any data.
