    Finally I was able to relocate it.
    
    Last night I aimed my video camera at a area of sky I thought the milstar at 68 degrees should be.
    
    I played back the video this morning, after getting home from work.
    
    A geo object in the right area, was observed.
    
    It passed south of a star at 3:26:33 UTC ( Oct 2 )
    
    The star was at
    
    RA (J2000.0): 23 41 51.62
    declination -05 59 07.8
    
    Milstar was mag approx 7.7 at the time.
    
    I modified a tle to get, what I saw on the video.
