While observing Jupiter I witnessed what I believe is an earth satellite flying across the face of Jupiter. I measured the satellite to be 7.6 arc-minutes. It was around 7:24pm PST Feb 16, 2015. Using I could not figure out what satellite it would have been. Any help in figuring out what object was is highly appreciated!

Shooting at 30fps it took about 10 frames to travel across the face of Jupiter which had a diameter of about 44″, so it was traveling about 132 arc-min/sec
