    Now had chance to clean up the video of the UNID captured on Friday night.
    
    The video http://mysite.wanadoo-members.co.uk/satcom_transits/HBMover.wmv
    consists of  25-second frames.The UNID can just be seen top of the screen in
    the first frame ,which I have highlighted .In the same frame four of the 
    Eutelsat Hotbird fleet can be seen, approx mag 12.
     I then followed the object "north"  and observed it for a few more
    minutes .......
    
    approx RA= 0h33.9m  Dec= -730'
    
    There were a couple of graveyard satellites in the area at the time , but I 
    dont think the movement of the object is consistent
    with their orbit. It seems to be moving too fast.
