    Didn't move much if at all...did change angular extent with different powers, but it must've been a reflection anyway because of lack of motion :O(

    Running findsat against latest spacetack, classfd.tle and inttles.tle only suspect was 83002J 13769 which is
    a rocket in a 1460 by 1650 74 deg obit that launched 8 cosmos satellites. I assume these satellites were  soviet store/forward
    LEO comsats.
    Brad did it move relative to stars/ and or in az/elevation?
