    For 22219 1992-076A - I saw looking to the East from my front yard, I noticed a bright, light moving South to North, below Castor and Pollux, about 20 up in the northeast. I first thought it was an airplane, but in my binoculars, I could not see any anti-collision lights, so I marked the time and watched.  After I came inside I checked my astronomy program, The Sky 5.0 and determined that it was Cosmos 2219. It was very bright, about -3.  It is always nice to see a satellite that I had not anticipated to see show up.
    
    Regards,
    Bill
