     BTW!!!
    
     On video, it is extremely obvious this is a cylinder spinning in all three
    axes, as the light does not travel in a straight line.. Using an integrating
    camera and integrating 4 fields (2 frames) the small streak is almost never
    straight.. 
    
    It does not, however, vary in brightness, not including normal extinction
    from elevation and phase angle..
    
    Very cool..
