    Would this appear to move very slowly or would the exhaust 
    cloud zip across the sky in a few minutes?
    The observer indicated very little motion as opposed to a typical 
    barium cloud which would be in a low orbit.  I expect orbit
    circularization would be a high orbit but not sure about inclination
