[aprssig] Two Space Stations on the APRS-IS !

I have started filtering for Lynn's ISS object on my UIview webserver displays, 
but have discovered that a second ISS lagging his by about a 1000 miles is also 
being injected into the APRS-IS.    Screen cap from my UIview display as of 
12:44 PM EDT ( 1644 UTC 14-Mar-2012) :

The information for the second (lagging one) seems completely bogus -- speed of 
"only" 620 MPH.   What kind of statement is "AOS @ 15-03 06:19 LOC" ?   AOS 
where????

  Is this object junk, or is there some hidden meaning in it?
