    Apparently this is an old object which has a large inclination
    which you spotted as it was crossing the plane of zero inclination
    geosyncs.
    
    A nominal orbit with a period of 1436 minutes is:
    
    Unknown 051002
    1 90041U 05775A   05275.05715469 0.00000000  00000-0  00000-0 0    07
    2 90041  14.0000 348.3100 0003000 180.0000 180.0000  1.00270000    01
    
    Of course the true period could differ from 1436 by up to 5 or
    10 minutes.  But it should show up within 1 or 2 degrees of the
    same place tonight within 5 or 10 minutes of the same time.
