95- 72 B 96-04-01 20:14      LB                       almost S, mag 4

At 19:07 UT I saw a brght streak of light going just north of Beta Cepheus
and moving very fast from west to east almost parallel with the northern horizon.
Probably a meteorite?

95 72 B was accompagnied by a fainter satellite just 5 degrees above it and moving
along with it at the same speed. I'm not sure of this magniude 6 object in fact is 95 72 B?

Greetings
