    I have this very very approx orbit.
    
    TEST
    1 99999U 99999A   04276.68686403 -.00000190  00000-0  00000+0 0   137

    It sort of matches what I saw allowing for errors in time and position. So it seems it's not
    parked, and is drifting:(
    
    At around 5:04:10 UTC ( Oct 3 ) this object was near a mag 6 star which is around 
    
    RA (J2000.0): 01 24 20.48
    declination -06 54 52.8
    
    I hope it's clear tonight again, so I can try and find this unid. I still can't match it to any
    known geo sat. It was bright for awhile.
     
    I aim at that above area, ahead of time and follow it across the sky. If all goes to plans I hope
    to see it again.
