     At Heavens-Above I found Ghuj (in India) at Lat= 23.267 Long=  69.667 
     Alt= 105. Zone=  5.5
     Searching with SkyMap "all" satellites within 5 degrees and 20 minutes 
     from rho Oph at 05:38 local time I found two Breeze "APT" tanks, which 
     are usually quite bright, especially when flashing.
     These are USSTRATCOM numbers 28395 and 28661 at about 18000 km range.
     But they would pass the star at 5:28 and 5:51 respectively, at less 
     than 1 degree distance. One too fast, and one too far from the star were 
     also found.
     See attached map, and ask Rahul if either track might match his 
     observation.
     Unfortunately, the expected time error is less than one minute, since
