    While waiting to observe a pass of SeaSat-1 with naked eye,
    which I didnt see I observed a low , quite bright ( mag 1.5)
    object due E at 11:04:35 UTC + or - 3 seconds, at an elevation
    of some 35 degrees. It had passed near the two pointers to
    the false cross. FINDSAT suggests 94 61A Cosmos 2292,
    but the predicted path is not the observed one though the
    time is not much in error at the reported azimuth.
    All the other suspects put up by FINDSAT and the latest
    alldat.tle have similar inclinations. The observed direction
    suggested an inclination nearer MIR and ISS's 51 degrees.
    Any Suggestions?
