    Hi everyone
    
    Here is the video of the Astras in a four hour dance last night.
    FOV 30 arc minutes with GPS time stamp as seen from the UK
    
    Initially the moon was close by , so some of the birds were a little faint ,
    but they soon came out to play ;o)
    
    One of the chicks is still being a bit naughty , quite bright and out to the 
    east ............I suspect "fowl"  play ;o)

    In the shorter clip  which I posted last night
    the unidentifed object moving north to south  could be SleighSat ( Norad 
    251204 ) This high polar orbiting  satellite is rapidly decaying and should 
    re-enter early on the morning of
    December 25.

    Have a Happy Christmas
