    I have noticed the unid, seems to have a low inclined orbit, ie it resides in the geo belt.
    I came to that conclusion, by observing which star's it passed by, and the geo sat's would also
    pass somewhat near those same stars.
    
    The unid appeared to be within 1 degree of Intelsat 707 ( 23816 ), when I observed it. Hard to say
    where it be now. 
    
    Will have to scan the belt, hopefully find the ******* sat!
    
    Now be clear tommorow, so I can.
    
    I won't be suprised if it turn's out some geo sat was retired, and is driting. I was fooled by
    goes 13 once, when where moving it between orbital slots.
    
    It seems to give a flash between 6 to 7 minutes apart.
