Hi all,

I observed from the Southern Alps a quickly moving UNID on 7 FEB 2018 near
18h30.5m UT, see the addition of 2 consecutive photos and other info at:

Alain Grycan analyzed the track and provided 2 positions in IOD format :


*99999 99 999A 1002 20180207185619000 10 0512280-105004 99999 99 999A 1002
20180207185619200 10 0513018-105936*

Then he computed an approximative orbit using SAT2B :



*. i= 65°. altitude : 322 km. distance =561 km. Ω= 272°*

This object is absent from all our current sources for TLE including ISON
files.

Thanks for suggesting a tentative identification.
