    While scanning the sky, I came across a nice bright sat which I followed. I then noticed a faint slow moving sat, which I started to follow as long as possible, to id later.
    One obs, to show where it was at a certain time.

    So it was around 
    21 h 22 m R.A
    +2 deg 57 sec Dec
    At a time of 2:18:45 utc ( Jul 21 )
    Problem is nothing is in the area, so far that matches. The stuff shown nearby is to far up in orbit, so can't move at the speed seen.
    It was going west to east.
    Will have to fiqure out what it was later.
    Another example of not know what I'll see :)
