Notes:
----------
(1) Lafras reports it moving very fast from west to east, about
     magnitude +4, steady.

     I get the following assuming its a circular orbit:

99-99A                          6.8
1 99999U 99099  A 18 62.68196000  .00000000  00000-0  00000-0 0 00
2 99999  39.6693 229.1669 0000010   0.0000   0.0000 16.01231169 00

inclination 39.66 degrees, height 274 km ,period 89.93 minutes

Maybe a possible OTV5 ? except for the magnitude which is a bit faint.

Cheers
Greg
