US, Canada appear to identify Iranian satellite in orbit

The United States and Canada have identified new objects in orbit around the Earth, which appears to be the newly launched Iranian satellite, NOOR, and part of the rocket that brought it into space.

This appears to contradict reports by the Fox News outlet that no new satellites had been identified in orbit around the planet.

The North American Aerospace Defense Command, known by the acronym NORAD, designates the new objects as 2020-024A and 2020-024B in its list of satellites.

It is not immediately clear which is the NOOR satellite and which is the rocket.
