    Hi everyone,
    I was satellite watching last night, and one of the satellites was
    Cosmos 1222. It flew right across the two bright stars of Gemini,
    which is also where it came out of the shadow. I immediately noticed
    the immense speed at which it was travelling - I actually thought it
    was a meteor! It set within 2 minutes from the zenith. I guess that
    this means it's in a low orbit - is it decaying? It was going
    unnatturally fast.
