I am happy to confirm my earlier orbit sighting with this one. It was a complete overhead pass from NW to SE. It rose low in the NW at magnitude 3.5 (range 1700km, elevation 10, az 314), reached +1 as it passed Castor and Pollux (range 507km, elevation 83, az 226) and as it crossed the meridian slowly faded to 3.5 as it passed to the right of Regulus. When it crossed the zenith sunrise was 40 minutes away so the sky was fairly bright. 
Another overhead pass here tomorrow morning in slightly darker conditions.
