     Last night, while looking for another satellite, I saw an UNID moving 
     west to east in a near zenith pass. It was an easy 1x object. I tried 
     to identify it and came up with only one candidate, shown below:
     67014  M
     1 18911U 67014  M 98078.19431531  .00000709  00000-0  25818-3 0  6537
     2 18911  38.8446  22.3977 0756603 248.4520 103.3949 13.38018301529707
     However, the Satellite Situation Report lists 67-14 M as debris from a 
     French rocket. This makes me suspect about this being the 1x object I 
     saw. Does anyone know anything about this object, and if it is visible 
     at one power?
