    While playing back the video, of the flashing from Eutelsat W3B, I noticed a faint object pass by. I don't see anything taking the path noticed at the time. 
    
     guess at orbit. only had a short view of it.

    Orbit, showing how it passed by at the observe time, It passed across the feild of view, in under 20 seconds.

    It was faint, mag 8 are fainter. I will assume it was a bird.
