    I've hastily uploaded : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jvqqXIu19XM
    
    Included extra frames accidently so times aren't right (end time is)
    
    Dim object in question is at the end of the sequence in upper right corner 
    
    Interval is 11 seconds, exposure 5 seconds
    
    Satellite earlier is Lacrosse 5 #28646 (lower middle)
    Oh, and an aeroplane. 
    
    Video speed up is 11sec:1/6sec about 66:1
    
    I haven't researched it yet (but it's been bugging me) but I assume it's a flare of a very high altitude Sat. But not a GEO.
