|Very large satellite appearance.
North polar orbit. Just past zenith grew in brightness to about 10 times station brightness, moving as a typical satellite, until much more bright than any satellite could possibly get from reflected sunlight, unless extremely large, i.e. 1/2 mile in size @ 300 miles agl.
