    Man oh Man, another so far unid sat, it looks like I came across. Not bad, I woke up early to enjoy the clear sky, and got rewarded with seeing a few sat's. 
    I was scanning the sky, looking for sat's to follow and id later. As I was scanning the sky, I came across a fast moving sat.
    I followed it, until it went into shadow. I then went looking for other sat's.
    I recently started to id the sat's, and had no problem until now.
    At 00:04:16 utc ( Feb 19 ) the mystery sat was around
    07 h 30 m R.A
    - 1 deg 37 min Dec
    It was around 6th mag at the time. It was going in a southern direction.
    I don't see any sat passing by, looking 5 minutes before and after, that followed the right path.
    Never know what I'll see.
    I am not tired, so I ain't seeing things.
