    Here's what a picture of the flashing satellite I saw
    The bottom one would be the apple geo sat.
    Here's the vido I took.
    Should play using the apple quicktime player
    You see a flash around 0:05:51 and 0:06:09 on the numbers at the bottom of the screen. That's the
    gps time inserter, outputing the wrong date and time, as I messed up the settings of the gps
    receiver that outputs the info this device uses. It's fixed now.
    The bright star to the lower left is alpha orion.
    The time of the video would would be around 9:20 pm EST ( Feb 22 ) give or take a few minutes.
    Not bad for a fluke find:)
