    Hi all,
    I've managed to capture what may be the first in-orbit image of the DPRK's first satellite.
    Image was taken at 11:17:23 UTC on Dec 12, from Sydney, Australia.
    Area of sky is around:
    RA 2hr35m40.9sec 
    Dec -50 14'39.4"
    13sec exposure (still determining whether the timestamp is the beginning or end of the exposure).  I'm still also trying to determine whether this is the A or B object (it's getting late).
