    Folks,
    
    I have an unidentified geostationary satellite on one of my images of this evening.
    
    It is about 0.5 degrees west of the duo Turksat 2A (01-002A) and Turksat 3A 
    (08-030B) and about the same brightness.
    
    Can't find a match to any known object, public or classified.
    
    Positions for all 3 objects (from 2 images 20 seconds apart):
