    Hello:
    
     I was on my balcony last night observing Jupiter. About 10pm a fast 
    moving satellite
    came form the NNE to SSE but I cannot find any ID for it on Heavens Above.
    
    Date: June 29/30,2007
    
    Time:  Approx. 0100 UT
    
    Place: Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada
    
    Lat: N44^ 39' 13"
    
    Long: W63^ 36' 29"
    
    Mag.: Close to Alpha Aquilae (Altair) magnitude.
    
     It took about 20 seconds to cross the sky and had to be a low orbit 
    satellite for
    it's speed. It's pass was probally 45 to 50 degrees altitude.
    
    Can anyone ID this for me?
