    Greetings from Celo, NC (35.51, -82.11 @UTC -5)  I used to subscribe to the
    list but have been off for several months.
    I was out stargazing last night, when I noticed a fairly bright sat moving
    ENE --> SSW at about 50' elevation at maybe 3 - 3.5 mag.  I thought "WHOA!!"
    Its way too late to see a sat. It was 22:46 local time.  The sun set last
    evening here at 17:20.  I quickly spotted the  sat w/ my 10x50 binocs that I
    use to stargaze and it was a single point of light.  The last entry at
    Heaven's Above for my location was at 19:29.
    So, any clue as to what this might have been some 5+ hours after sunset?
