Excellent match so far with these elements:

1 44348U 19036K   19176.47956735  .00000352  00000-0  00000+0 0  9991
2 44348  28.5449 199.6259 0392489 107.1682  11.6450 14.96305882    23

Northern Hemisphere passes begin at about 9:35 PM LOCAL time
Then again at around 11:15 PM and then about 01:00 AM local time ish....

What is amazing, is that it looks like it is about the SAME time every day
for a pass even though the orbit is moving earlier

After a few days, there will be a new orbit around 8 PM local time, and
the others above will continue at the same time.

And so forth.  So it is moving earlier but appears to have this sun
synchronous behavior...
