Using fresh TLE from SpaceTrack and Mike, searching within +- 3 minutes,
and 5 degrees from the centre of Lyra, I find two distant objects taking
15+ minutes to cross Lyra.
One (#22181 SL-6) passed along the 19h and 20h R.A. lines , (#28129
NavStar) passed roughly 45 degrees away from this direction. Possible, but
unlikely ?
If you prefer faster objects I have 10 DEBris objects.
It would help a lot if you could indicate on the attached star map how it
crossed Lyra, and/or a star further away it (would have) passed.

Could it have been a drone ?
