    Last night I happened to be out just after 8pm here in Tucson. Overhead
    was a bright satellite, about 0-1st mag. as I was able to compare it to
    Arcturus (0 mag.). I went in and downloaded the Heavens-Above ephem.
    for the evening and found that what I must have seen was Cosmos 1220.
    The time, direction etc. were all correct but it was about 3 mags. off
    in brightness! 
    Any thoughts on this?
