    I came up with Iridium 57(98-19B) as a possible candidate.  Looking at the
    position of Jupiters moons I found out that the satellite was traveling in
    a N->S direction which is the correct direction for Iridium 57.  Passage
    time close to Jupiter is almost 06h38m which is local time.(UTC + 1h)
    Joost Brinkkemper told me that the time of transit was more or less than
    6h30m on November 4.  Probably this is local time(UTC+1h) but I'm not sure.
     I used some rudimentary geographical coordinates based on the city of
    Alphen a/d Rijn(4d39mE, 52d08mN).
