    LOL.. At the end of the video, it appears there is a solitary tree way off
    on the ridge. I actually intend on looking for that tree, as I have lived
    here three years and have never seen it..
    I think it may not actually be on the ridge, but rather I think it is new
    growth on the Apricot Tree in the front yard. I think this, because if you
    look earlier, by M6, you see a vertical edge on the right side of the video
    that does not exist on the ridge.
    I trimmed that tree when I moved in so it wouldn't block my Southern sky.
    Seems like it might be time to whack it again...

    I agree now - I could see the "horizontal" tree edge by turning up contrast
    and brightness, but increasing contrast further a small "blob" appears at
    that spot (pine tree?)
