In the vicinity of M56 / NGC 6779

Last night while setting up a shot of M56 I saw something streak through going very fast. I managed to click capture just in time to catch it exiting the frame. How would I determine if it was a satellite or other object? Is there a way to take FITS data and get a list of what it might have been?
