         The Minor Planet Electronic Circulars contain information on unusual
             minor planets, routine data on comets and natural satellites,
             and occasional editorial announcements.  They are published
        on behalf of Division F of the International Astronomical Union by the
              Minor Planet Center, Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory,

                              DELETION OF 2015 LA65                          
         The designation 2015 LA65, announced on MPS 1915947 on Aug. 3, 2023 UT,
    is being deleted. The object was reported as a multi-night linkage of 
    Pan-STARRS 1 (F51) detections, however, the submitters later realized that the
    detections were a mixture of mostly synthetic simulated detections and a few
    real ones, all obtained from a catalog of detections, without any visual
    verification. Therefore, the designation 2015 LA65 is being deleted and will be
    listed as omitted.
