    I was checcking the space track site, and notice a tle from the proton launch a few hours ago.
    Catalog number = 38744
    So I aimed where it was predicted to pass, at around 4:08 utc.
    And I was treated to a oh so nice suprise, 4 satellite flying in formation, the 2 geo sat's, the APT and the breeze M rocket.
    Oh so nice :)
    That's the coolest sat pass I have ever had.
    I captured it on video, which I will post later, assuming no problem with the recorder. Time inserter was in use at the time of the pass.
    I was outside with the stuff this time.
    A very happy sat observer, as I might have seen a fast moving unid, at the start of the night, as it passed while I was observing a APT. I will have to check to see, to be sure. I don't think it was a bird, I could be wrong.
