    I have ISS at 19:35 !?
    And I can't find anything bright W-E 19:15-19:25 UTC - 7h
    We probably need more info:
    Your latitude and longitude (or nearest city)?
    Size of possible time error?
    Culmination in the N or S ?
    How high (altitude in degrees) ?
    Culmination slightly W/E of the N-S meridian?
    Where did it pass in relation to stars/constellations?
    Speed at culmination (x times ISS, or NN seconds to pass a palm's width at a
    straight arm)?
    Brightness (magnitude or star comparison)
    Steady or flashing ? Period of flashes ?
