    While i was waiting for ISS to arrive i was looking around the twilight sky
    when i spotted a bright object low to the NNW, est Az 350 deg El 20 deg at
    03:00:07 +/- 3 sec 29 Sept UTC. Est mag -1. At first i thought it was an
    airliner as one was heading the opposite way but the object remained steady
    for a long time, about 5-10 sec before fading. Enough to see it's track was
    from NNW to ESE. I closest object i get is Cosmos 2237 #22565 93016A.
