    While scanning the sky, I came across a bright geo sat. The closest one is a DSCS 3-14 ( 27875 ) Onlt problem is the path it takes, it's predicted to pass above the star, the unid passed below.
    The clouds showed up shortly after.
    Wonder if by fluke, I got to see the recently launched Intelsat 23, which was placed directly into geo orbit, and would be drifting to it's assigned orbital slot. Intelsat 707 which passed the area, the unid was seen, was going to be replaced by Intelsat 23.
    Just a crazy thought of mine, pay no attention to illogical thinking me
