    I should have written "to the SSW" !
    But in essence, it is less relevant for identification to estimate in what compass 
    direction it may be heading for the horizon -
    much more relevant is the direction (and speed) of motion in the immediate vicinity of 
    where you observe the object.
    Most easy (for naked eye or binocular obs) is relative to a vertical line, e.g. like on 
    a clock face or correspondingly in degrees, ie 3 o'clock is 90 degrees (to the right, 
    horizontally), in other cases (telescope?) relative to a line between a pair of stars.
