Magnus,

I find two candidates for your ~16:52 UTC (21 Dec) satellite observation:
Cosmos 2058 (#20465) and Nadezhda 3 R/B (21153).  The rocket body
had the closer conjuction with Alderamin -- about 3 degrees at 16:50:10.
However, Cosmos 2058 is a better time-match:  16:52:15, about 5
degrees below and to the left of the star.  Both sats were heading south.
