The other night, I aimed at a area of sky near the bright star Rigel, while the sky was clear.

Today, I played back the video, to see what came by.

I was rewarded by 2 flaring geo sat's, 

AMC 18 (  29644 )  flared to mag 9 are brighter, around 0:45 utc ( Feb 17 )., So looks like another geo sat, who's antenna causes a flare.

Then 1 hour later, Muos 5 gave a show, which lasted a good amount of time. Was mag 8 are brighter. Has a decent sized reflector on it.

Never know, what I'll discover. My electronc eye, has been great.
