    Your observation report is in reasonable agreement with the NOSS 2-1 triad. 
    
    The US STRATCOM catalogue numbers of the three NOSS 2-1 objects are 20691, 20692
    and 20642.
    
    Here is a plot of object 20691 on the pass you observed:

    Information on the NOSS satellites is available here:
