    Last evening Vortex 6 and USA 227 have had to be in the same part of the sky and in narrow field of view, 
    but I managed to find only one slow-moving geosat. Maybe because of unfavorable weather (haze, clouds). 
    I think that the sat was Vortex, and it was early (0 < Xtrack < 0.8 arcminutes, -153 < Time < -149 seconds 
    in comparison to 13090.211 orbital elements).
