This maybe a stupid question but what is a crosser?

Thanks to a heads-up from Ed Cannon that our overcast skies had
unexpectedly cleared this evening, I was able to get out in my
driveway in time to see a few things.  The most interesting was
a crosser, which doesn't happen very often in my light-polluted
at-home skies:  Cosmos 1154 (11682/80-008A) travelling south and
ERBS (15354/84-108B) travelling north.  The red-orangish color
of ERBS was distinctive in my 10x50 binoculars.

For those somewhat new to the list, ERBS is a fairly bright and
interesting object -- because of its color -- and if you haven't
seen it yet, it's definitely worth trying to see.
