    But it is an unknown that I can't seem to see again. Although believed to be a r/b, it appears to remain attached to the payload, which spreads a band of cloud over its track, at least at Tulsa. Cleared up later (of course), so I snuck in some geosats. Finally did see 24819 (Inmarsat 3-F4) but no hope for the Spainsat trio. NOAA 8 was very bright, brighter than all the winter stars it was flashing through.

    Not a geosat, but launched 2 of them, and I could see it in my scope!
