I had trouble identifying faint stars, so I don't have a point from the
final track, but I got the end of the first one (which appeared to exit
from shadow at the start), the end of the second track, and the appulse of
iota UMa.

92111 16 606A   6226 G 20160414003249000 57 25 1036483+451684 55 S
92111 16 606A   6226 G 20160414003321000 57 25 0859000+480200 55 S
92111 16 606A   6226 G 20160414003344000 57 25 0750665+471734 55 S

With the first and third point, SatFit gave an orbit which fits all three
quite well.
Does it look like IGS O2 ( or like USA 161 !) , though it was predicted to
pass in the east at the same time?
