    Hello all,
    
    My first crack at this and with an unidentifed to boot. I captured this on 
    video and worked up the positions based on stopwatch times for the points. I 
    checked all of the available tle's (catalog, debris's & classfd) for the 
    day, nothing close or within a +/- 30 minute window of the orbital plane. If 
    someone else could check my numbers, I would appreciate knowing if what I 
    worked up is ok. The satellite was steady at about mag 4 or 4.5, no 
    blinking.
    
    I used Ted's ObsReduce 1.3 and Scott's ELFIND to work up the orbit and hope 
    to catch another pass this evening.

    TLE based on points one and four which matched the best when run in 
    HeavenSat against the video.

    I have another unidentified later on the video but haven't had a chance to 
    work it up yet.
