    Just observed this object in the early morning against a very bright sky.
    
    Elset Used:
    
    COSMOS 2367
    1 26040U 99072A   02196.21641872  .00996838  61258-3  88475-3 0  3018

    This was very visible in the pre-dawn moving very quickly to the North.  The
    sky was too bright to have any starfield for a comparison...
