     Sorry forgot the date...
     Last night I was out just general observing and saw a few
    satellites, but one was interesting. It "appeared" in Aquila
    and desended towards the SSW but was moving very slow and it brightened
    to almost -2 magnitude as I was trying to use Jupiter as a guide. It
    was brighter than any of the brighter stars. I looked on Heavens Above
    and CalSky but none match the track or even say what satellite it
    was. One thing of interest was it's "twinkling" as it moved slow.
