    I sent SkyMap screen shots to Ulhas (and Atul)
    14905 passed 0.2 deg above , 5 seconds before 20:45
    21429 passed the dark sector of the Moon, but 3 min. later.
    I agree it is diffucult without the photograph.
    (a trail long like Saturn would indicate a geosynchronous, if it was
    receorded the full second), but no star there?
