    Thanks for comments,
    
    But No far too fast for a Saturn Moon. I'm relaying all this information 
    here. I wasn't the onserver. But The Observer may not be a 
    "Professional" as far as diplomas in researching the sky, but he is a 
    :Professional" in every other sense of the word. In his back yard he has 
    an Observatory that many universities would love to have.  Several 
    hundreds of thousands of dollars invested in the equipment. And he has 
    been doing this for decades. So not much could fool him.
