    My evidence of what I observed :)
    
    All video, is with the video camera at the end of my telescope.
    
    Feild of View =  roughly 1 degree across. 
    
    Unid geo sat

    Area pointed at was
    
    22 h 08 m R.A
    -6 deg 52 min
    
    Look to the upper right for a star moving in the wrong direction, and passes a star. I was tracking the stars in this video, so geo sat is moving in this video because of that. 
    
    For Spaceway 2 and spaceway 1 flaring, I was pointed at
    
    22 h 15 m R.A
    -6 deg 44 min Dec
