I could be wrong, but I might have seen a unid satellite this morning.

    I had what looked like to be a satellite pass by, while trying to observe any flashing from
    molniya 1-81 ( 21426 ).
    
    It passed less then 1/4 degree, and above a star at
    
    J2000 position at current date (proper motion included):
    Right ascension: 14h14m40.9812s
    Declination: +21 52' 24.160"
    
    Time was 4:51:17 UTC.
    
    I decided to track this fast thing, and only after I went to id it, did I see it seemed to a unid.
    
    It didn't appear to be stable in magnitude.
    
    I will check again, and try to measure positions, incase it's a unid.
    
    Sorry if's a non unid satellite.
    
    I could have messed up.
