    I work up early, seen I had a clear sky, and so setup the stuff and did some leo observing for awhile. I then then aimed at Echostar 2 ( 24313 ) to check on it for flashing, at which point I went back to sleep. 
    Problem is, I seem to have had 2 unid's pass by.
    First one was going west to east, and was flashing.
    Nothing is shown to be, where it was seen, at the time. 
    The sat was around
    5 h 54 m R.A
    -6 deg 27 min Dec 
    at 1:26:18 utc ( Feb 10 )
    Getting obs of it, will be difficult, as it passed near the bottom of the feild of view.
    The other was going south to north. At 2:02:59 utc, it was around
    6 h 26 m R.A
    -4 deg 3 min Dec
    So is there stuff really there, don't need a repeat of the other day.
    Both were slow moving, so a good distance away at the time.
