Last night, I followed a sat, and noticed a slow moving sat to the right of it.

Nothing was shown to be there at the time, so I followed it, as long as possible,

Something in a GTO ( geo transfer orbit ) so eventually will decay.

Sky was hazy, wrecking the view.

Mike had generated a orbit, for the unid I had seen.

He called it USA 58.

I went to look for it, last night, had no luck.

Oh well I tried.

What a great month this been, for seeing unid's :)
Nice that they could be matched to stuff.
