Hi all,

Trying to observe USA 81 near the handle of Ursa Major,
at 17:13 UTC Mar 11 I've noticed a satellite running from N.
It was approx. mag 2-3 near Epsilon UMa (I may be wrong
with the star - it appeared quite suddenly), then much fainter.
The object went into shadow at 17:17:20 UTC in SE.
My coordinates were 55.635N 37.474E, elev approx 250 m.

Can anybody identify the satellite? Please don't blame me
if the answer is really simple.
