On 8/10 I noticed a satellite passing through northeastern Ophiuchus at
about 01:32:00 UT.  It was passing north to south and appeared to have 
passed high in the west with an altitude of perhaps 80 to 85 degrees.
At 01:33:45 it occulted Sigma Sagittarius (Nunki).

It was varying from about magnitude 4.5 to 2.8 with a period of approximately
2 seconds between magnitude maxima.

My coordinates are 41.71N, 71.37W.

Can someone provide an identification?
