    With elsets available Jan 31 , and later elsets, Mir should have
    passed UTC 01:47:20  at 29 deg. SW , and Sun at -5.5 degrees
    I believe your local time is UTC-8, which makes it 17:47
    One orbit before, the Sun was shining, one after, Mir was below horizon.
    
    No bright sat in SW from alldat.tle from 01:52 to 02:01, closest
    match is ROCSAT 1 at mag 5.9, az 206, 35 deg. 01:58:44
