    Hope you are all keeping well!
    
    Saw a bright UNID tonight 4-29 in evening twilight. It
    was heading SW to NE. At 20:15:00 local time = 4-30-05
    3:15:00 UTC, it passed 5 deg E of eta UMa (tail of the
    Big Dipper) heading down into the NE.
    
    Magnitude 1.5.
    
    It was moving about 1.8 times faster than Cosmos 1220,
    which made a good bright pass heading to the N.
    
    I could not identify it with the catalog.txt file from
    Space-Track, even lowering limiting magnitude to 9.
    Suggestions welcome!
