Hey guys, I'm fairly new to the satellite observing world (1 year) and was wondering if someone could help me ID a satellite I observed tonight (Saturday, June 10, 2017; 03:01 UTC) [local time was Friday, June 09, 2017; 23:01 EDT].  I was searching for a Cosmos rocket body and picked up a very faint sat in my binoculars.

My coordinates:  36.1232° N, 77.4267° W

Object was traveling from approx. North northwest (315°) to Northeast (45°)
Altitude:  40° (10° above Polaris)
Magnitude:  +4.5 - +4.0

I use the Heavens-above app and didn't see anything in that general location on the scope.  I searched the 5.0 magnitude sats on the Heavens-above website but still couldn't locate anything that it may have been.

Thanks for any help,

Reggie Duke
