    Welcome to SeeSat-L, Michael.
    At the time of your observation, ISS was far below your horizon, passing over
    13.4 S, 169.1 E
    I may be able to identify the object, if you could estimate its position
    relative to a celestial object, e.g. 10 deg radius from Jupiter, at 10 o'clock
    position centred on Jupiter. 
    Also, the best way to specify an object's direction of motion is in terms of the
    position-angle of its entry or exit into your field of view (as if you were
    observing with binoculars) at the moment of the observation, e.g. entered FOV at
    the 4 o'clock position, or exited FOV at 10 o'clock position.
