                              DELETION OF 2020 XA1                              

     On December 6, 2020, the Near-Earth Object candidate C1N7CE1, reported by
the Catalina Sky Survey, was posted to the Near-Earth Object Confirmation Page.
Follow-up observations from five distinct observing sites resulted in the
designation and publication of Near-Earth Object 2020 XA1, published in
MPEC 2020-X45.  B. Gray subsequently noted that the object is the Spektr-RG
spacecraft. Therefore, the designation 2020 XA1 is being deleted and will be
listed as omitted.
