    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
    Spaceway 2 ( 28903 )
    Spaceway 1 ( 28644 )
    See, I really did see the spaceway geo sat's flaring up:)
