Marco and Cees,


Appreciate the additional confirmation.


My original pinpointing of USA 224 was done without directly measuring the sun angle and just estimating it.  Figured that would get my timing within an hour or two of the pass as a first guess.  The direct overfly of 224 within this window was too obvious to pass up as the top candidate in terms of orbital platforms.

I confirm Marco's analysis.

See https://twitter.com/cgbassa/status/1167578706379988992?s=20 and
subsequent tweets, as well as my analysis at
https://github.com/cbassa/satellite_analysis/blob/master/nahid1_launch_failure_analysis.ipynb

It's not often that we can link an image to a Keyhole satellite.

Regards,
    Cees
