I went out to watch Envisat make a near zenith pass and see the moon and Venus close on a warm 45 F.Saw a bright satellite heading NE. I made a mental note that when Envisat was in Cassiopeia the bright unknown was near the Pleiades.Noss 3-3 A and Noss 3-3 C have the correct position and direction but:a) the time seems off by 1 minute ( this could be me since no watch used in timing)b) I estimated it to be 3 magnitude and my only other obs of these satellites in 2005 I used a telescopec) I was only seeing 1 satellite
Is there a better fit for what I saw? If it was Noss, which one was it?
