Help Identifying Satellite

I was working my way from Mirach to the Andromeda Galaxy when a satellite
made its way across my telescopes view.  I was pointed at uAnd at 9:52:40
UTC 2014-06-26 observing from 39.5518, -104.9085.  The observed magnitude
appeared to be the same as some 7 magnitude stars in the area.  From what I
see in Stellarium the closest satellite to that position at that time was
RS-15.  However I'm not sure that it would be bright enough to see on a
telescope.  It took about 5 seconds to cross my field of view of 1.53
degrees.  Does anyone have any other ideas of what it could have been or
know if RS-15 is even big enough to show as a mag 7?
