    I would be grateful for assistance in identifying at least one of the stars in this photo:
    The photo reportedly is of Sputnik 1's rocket body, photographed from Perth, Australia, on 1957 Oct 09 UTC. I have an
    accurate orbit for around that date, which seems not to pass any of the stars in the photo, which leads me to suspect
    that the date and/or satellite's identity is incorrect.
