    While looking near delta cassiopeia in the telescope I observed a slow
    moving satellite with a steady magnitude. I followed it for a while without
    taking any exact times. I was able to identify it as USA 40r #20344.
    A few minutes later at 01.57.01 UTC, I was watching 2 and 1/2 degrees under
    beta pegasus for a predicted pass of Explorer 38  #03307.
    Both of these sats, first time sightings for me, were traveling
    approximately .04 degree/second at a range near 6200 km with Explorer 38
    being dimmer.
