    Cosmos 389 appears to account for your observation:
    
    Cosmos 389       5.0  1.5  0.0  5.4 v 14.6
    1 04813U 70113A   03287.50559406  .00131036  00000-0  54880-3 0  8421
    2 04813  81.1197 284.1220 0006855 168.2530 191.9043 15.85177317786006
    
    As seen from Philadelphia on 2003 Oct 15, it was headed south, passing near the
    moon at 9:55:56 UTC, then through Orion less than 30 s later. At culmination its
    angular velocity was 1.25 deg/s, which is quite fast.
