    I believe I saw this morning (or at least I can't find anything as a better
    fit):

    As an UNID while tracking Telkom 2 r/b (28904,05-46C), with another UNID
    running N-S OPS 1593(1952,66-005A), quite a sight!
    It was 7th mg, had the correct inclination (rising slightly ENE), running
    late against last elset:

    Maybe others can confirm.

    Oh, by the way, a very lovely, dark Lunar Eclipse was occurring. This is
    on-topic because the dim moon did not interfere with sat watching :O)
