    Just watched the Astra group ( seven sats at 19 degs east) over a period of
    three hours or so.It was a race against time as the bright moon was tracking
    very near to the arc,...and closing in all the time !
    Despite this , at around 2220 gmt  , managed to see them go into eclipse.
    By the time they re-emerged , around 2317 , the Moon was just too bright
    ..... and imaging was brought to an abrupt end .
    Noticeable during the three hour period was the marked movement by the birds
    , which appeared to  perform an aerial ballet.
