    I have posted the video to my website.. 21 MB..
    It is at the bottom of the left hand column on this page..
    It works better to raise the brightness so the sky is almost grey..
    The star at the top of the screen is Aldebaren..
    Satellite appears at the middle left of the screen..
    If you don't see it at first, be patient.. You will!
    I did look up to see it naked eye.. Fantastic.. Just Spectacular.. The video
    is not near as good as naked eye, since I had to use an inferior camera and
    it is Science, not pretty pictures, as I am very fond of saying!!
    Next time.. It will be a Pretty Video too..
