    Hi Malcom,
    
    You can try also with satflare.com, it should be possible to identify the 
    satellite with a few clicks.
    Here you can find explanations:

    http://www.satobs.org/seesat/May-2012/0051.html
    http://www.satobs.org/seesat/May-2012/0052.html
    
    And here your satellite, which of course corresponds to that already 
    identified by Ted:
    
    http://www.satflare.com/advsearch.aspx?sat=&sort=0&order=1&lat=51.445&lon=-2.75
    &alt=0&max=1000&JD=2456073.

    90&maxel=90&mininc=-180&maxinc=180&minas=0.
