    Hello,
    By 'book-ending' the date in question, with TLEs roughly 100 days either
    side (the closest I could find)... NOSS 2-1 made a pass right around 19:00
    UTC.
    The pass would have been something like this edited Satellite Hunting
    post-diction (give or take about 5 minutes, or so, due to the differing
    epochs).
    U.T.C.    Elev.    Azimuth    Mag    Right Ascension    Declination
    18:56:16   0      311 [NW] 8.9    13h 26m 34s        23 30' 48.00"
    19:06:09  64     037 [NE]   6.5    00h 52m 16s       67 52' 16.17"
    19:07:45  52     086 [E]      6.7    01h 29m 56s       40 46' 48.42"
    
    In astro terms, the Noss 2-1 trio would have passed near Alkaid in the tail
    of Ursa Major, on its way toward Kochab, along the rim of the bowl of the
    Little Dipper (Ursa Minor) and on through Cassiopeia, before entering shadow
    in Andromeda.
