    Hi Seesaters,
    Last night at about 03:09:28 10/15/00 UTC, I was observing the moon at
    about 50X when it was transited by a satellite.  The solar arrays of the
    sat were clearly visible.  They were square, or nearly so, and appeared
    to be joined to the sat at a corner of each.  But the sat itself was too
    small to see or I just didn't see it in the 3 seconds or so of the
    transit.  This may have been Cosmos 783, but it doesn't exactly match
    with the Moon keps I got from the web.  Can anyone help ID this, or
    point me to an image of Cosmos 783 so I can see if it's the same shape?
