Regrettably, neither WxTrack nor Heavens-Above identified my UFO. WxTrack is good in that it can try to identify a satellite visible from any specific locaction at any day/time but it's database is not comprehensive unless downloading the Kepler data from other websites; but it is also not very easy to use. Heavens-Above is very comprehensive but cannot do a search on satellites overhead for a particular time/location (at least, I have not found a way) and it would take an age to go through the database of orbiting things one by one. I fear the object must remain as a UFO :-(
It was between 22:00 and 22:15 (BST) and took a perfectly straight path with the speed that resembled that of a LEO satellite. I don't think it was a low flying plane as it was too silent (there were plenty of aircraft about, for comparison, as it is on a flight path close to London).
Anyway, I now have access to some good satellite finder sites which I can play with. Did I mention the visit from some green pointy eared blokes the next day?
