Good morning,

Last night, at about 7:59:30, CST, as I was watching Milstar 3 moving W
to E, about 3 degrees to the left of 35-Lambda Tauri (the star 5 degrees
below the point in the V of the Hyades), I saw another, moving right to left
above Milstar. I went to Mike McCants web page and downloaded the elements
there, but am unable to find a match. My location is 30:29:07 -89:00:09.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,
Bill Arnold

How far above Milstar 3 was it, and what was its approxdimate magnitude?

Did it move exactly right to left? If not, was it rising ot setting?

What was its approximate angular velocity?
