    Yes, Matija, that's a good match to Ted's predicted orbit, assuming your
    3:57 time
    is UTC.  --Rob

    Subject: Shenzhou 5 seen?
    At 3:57:00 I noticed a satellite approximately 15 degrees above SSE horizon
    flying towards east. It was slowly tumbling and was changing brightness from
    magnitude 2 or 3 to invisible and back in about 15 seconds. Could it be
    5 or its rocket?
