    The Midas have been brighter, but it's been a long time since I saw one.
    With a combined alldat+classfd+some more, the only other I find is NOSS
    3(G), but 2.5 minutes earlier, and moving in DIR=287, not 257 like Midas
    5 and your indication.
    The NOSS was at 1860 km range, moving one degree in 4.5 s,
    MIDAS at 3317 km and one degree in 8.5 s.
