    I was playing back the video, I captured from Mar 9, when I notice a faint satellite, ie looks to be a geo sat. It was somewhat near Intelsat 705 ( 23528 ) being below it, and to the right of it, as seen with my non inverted feild of view.
    So the unid was between Intelsat 705 ( 23528 ) which is in a drift orbit, 
    as it's been moved to a new orbital slot, and Intelsat 1R ( 26608 )
    This unid passed near a star, in the tycho star catalog with a number of 4919 383, are it was near 
    10 h 44 m R.A
    -6 Deg 37 min Dec
    At around 2:31 utc ( Mar 10 )
    It was faint, mag 10 are fainter.
    Sorry if I am missing something, and wasting your time, if it turns out to be a known geo sat.
    No positions on it possible, for a orbit to be generated.
