seems I have a problem = unid sat

Looks like waking up early, might have been a good thing. After 12 straight nights of cloud filled sky, it was predicted to be clear tonight.

So after seeing it was clear, I set up my stuff, and scanned the sky, playing spot the moving stars.

Everything was going fine, until I noticed a fast moving sat looking object, which looked to go into shadow. I will have to check that one again, to be on the safe side, and see it was a unid. 

But then later, I came across a slow moving unid. Nothing was predicted to be there at the time,

It nicely passed by a deep sky object.

For the moment, I'll blame that uncataloged APT from a recent launch, ie Yamal 401.
