    I, too saw a dim sat travelling from east to west, and even managed to
    take a photo of it... I haven't tried to scan the print, but looking at
    the negs with a magnifier the sat appears to have a pair of large panels
    set approx 90 degrees apart, sort of a V shape, can't tell much else
    about it yet, too busy, but very curious though. It passed through about
    60 degrees NNE going from SE to WNW... didn't get a time, I was too busy
    trying to get a picture. hmmm...
