    Using Findsat, I got the following one as being in the general
    vicinity and in sunlight.  It's not a good match, but I kind 
    of wonder if one of its millions of as-yet-uncataloged fellows 
    might have been in the right place at the right time:
    1 18615U 63014DK  02329.47953813  .00000002  00000-0  10000-3 0  4239
    2 18615  86.2528 344.3078 1727469 228.7734 115.1122  8.74857873291453
    Could someone supply elements for the epoch 02311?
    One thing I can't tell at all from the photo is whether an 
    object in a near-polar orbit could possibly match the track.
    At the time of the photo 52 Cygni was in the WNW.  There's
    more discussion on the newsgroup:
