Slow moveing unknown

Sunday evening (monday 02:31 UTC) I was outside and saw a 0 magnitude
satellite moveing slowly north. It passed 5 - 10 degrees east of the zenith
and then faded to  invisable.
It's path would have taken it thru the bowl of the big dipper. I think the
inclination must have been nearly 90 deg.
Its speed reminded me of Pageos, so it must have been pretty high up.

Anyone have a guess on what satellite I saw?
