The object was the failed mirror experiment Zamora (?) I 
believe, it was round and about 4 meters across with triangular 
panels. This looked so much like a UFO I saw in light coastal clouds 
some months ago I wonder if this could have been an Earth-shine 
reflection of the the mirror on the clouds? I'd feel more comfortable 
with that than the alternative explanation. Most of the sky was 
obscured so I didn't see a satellite and I didn't note the time or day 
(at least I can't find a notation) so I can't check the orbital data.
