    An experienced astronomer was hoping someone could identify a very slow moving 
    satellite.
    Upper ophiuchus/lower hercules.
    
    It took about 70 seconds to cross the 7 degree FOV in her binoculars so this 
    would have a very high apogee.
    
    She is near Boston:
    71 28 56 W and 42 43 36N.
    
    Time:
    UTC: July 12 01:40 (plus or minus 2 minutes)
    Local: Friday July 11 9:40pm
    
    Location RA 17h 45 min  DEC +16 0 min probably within 15 degrees
    
    Thanks,
