    I had reported seeing a unid

    I finally managed to get positional obs on it

    And using Scott Campbell's ELFIND
    
    http://www.coastalbend.edu/acdem/math/sats/elfind.htm
    
    And got the following orbit
    
    UNID
    1 99999U 99999A   06359.15881495 0.00000073  00000-0  50000-4 0    06
    2 99999   2.1749  12.3343 0000419 249.4626 176.0903  0.98037847    05
    
    Then used his SATFIT program to try and imporove the orbit.
    
    http://www.coastalbend.edu/acdem/math/sats/satfit.htm
    
    And got 
    
    UNID
    1 99999U 99999A   06359.15881495 0.00000000  00000-0  50000-4 0    06
    2 99999   2.1910  12.6107 0000419 249.4626 176.0903  0.99872571    08
    
    Seems to match what I observed, that night.
    
    This object, I still can't match with any other sat.
