    Out of ~9000 satellites, none is entering shadow near pi Cas (within 15 
    min) - all that do are (low) in SE-SW-NW.
    And the only satellite I find from Pegasus to pi Cas is 27611 PLEM COVER 
    02-58G, but it comes left of zeta Peg 08:48:23 and right of alpha Peg, to pi 
    Cas at 08:49:36 at 650 km height.
    In fact, any satellite moving from eps Peg at az=224 (el=54) to pi Cas at 
    az=55 (el=72), with Sun at az=42 would be EXITING shadow.
