     Yet another sat sighting that is not listed on Heavens Above . Except for
    possible rocket bodies or Lacrosse , I don't think I've ever seen a sighting listed on HA
    that coincides with anything  that I've seen . Certainly nothing -1 or brighter .
     Is there another online database that will suggest when one may observe
    sats in their area of the planet ?
     Nice sat though , lasted 4-5 minutes and came just after the ISS passed at
    02:54 UTC . NASA said 1 minute ISS pass but it was 3 minutes . Under the big
    dipper and then under Polaris .
    UTC 03:00 August 15/2012
    -2 fading to -1 Mag (somewhat hazy skies)
    90 degree altitude (begin) to 50 degrees (end)
    begin S/W of Vega directly overhead
    end in the N/E after passing through Cassiopeia
    fairly slow moving , maybe 50% of ISS
    sighting lasted 4-5 minutes
    thanks in advance
