    While moving my scope, I observed a nice slow flashing satellite.
    At first nothing was shown to be near the area, but allowing for error in the time the sat passed by certain star's, and path taken = it was 36591.
    It was a CZ-3 R/B, and the last orbit available for it, had an epoch of Aug 13. It's in a geo transfer orbit, and eventually it will decay.
