This morning I went outside before sunrise and while
looking to see what constellations were visible I noticed
a star grouping that was odd.  My first thought was Leo.

I looked around a bit then back to that area and the odd
star was moving.  Watch it a while.  Northbound.  Apparent
sun-synchronous orbit.

It passes to the west of Polaris and I go inside to get an
approximate time.

Later using Skymap, SAOCOM 1-A, #43641, 18076A was a good match.

It was roughly as bright or brighter than Regulus.

This was a northbound pass.  87 degrees elevation, east of zenith.
