Starshine seen UK?

Satellite transit from SW to SE observed tonight approx 2238-2240 utc,
orbit similar to Mir/ ISS. My location about 51.5 N, 0.5 W. Time correlates
approximately with Starshine keps calculated a few days ago. Object moving
as fast as Mir/ISS does,  rising just beneath the moon at approx SW about
30+ degree elevation, rising in elevation and travelling across field of
vision to approx SE. Brightness less than that of Venus or Mir but visible
to naked eye though much clearer with binoculars.
