 I just stepped outside for a second and saw a slow moving satellite passing by Jupiter.  I checked HA but could not
find it, but the only close one was MOZ.5/SAFIR/RUBIN 5/SL-8	 at 3.7 magnitude.

Reason I ask is that it was about as bright as Jupiter at it's highest pass.   

Time noted:  5:32am AST =  0932 UT

Place: Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada

Lat: N 44d 39'

Long: W 63d 36'

Height; 57 meters above sea level.

Sat. brightness; est. -2 mag white. slow moving almost like ISS a bit.  

Came from SSE to over head to NNW

Clear skies
