    Purely by axccident I found a slow moving object, low in my NNE.
    The position observation
    in IOD format is given below. I was only using 7x50 binoculars, and the range
    is about 14000Km. I identified it using Findsat. Its path across my sky
    is at a maximum elevation of 86 degrees. I have in the past looked for
    various Molniyas at ranges nearer 4000Km, at culination or before
    and been completely unsuccessful!
