    While checking on Nstar B ( 23781 ), I noticed a star near the edge of the feild of view.
    
    So I aimed at it, to see what it was. I got Galaxy 28 ( 28702 ) as my id.
    
    Then I happened to notice, a fainter object leading Galaxy 28. I ran an ID on it, using orbital
    data I have, including mike mccant's data.
    
    Problem is so far nothing matches the mystery object, in a inclined orbit. I can tell it's got a
    inclined orbit, based in it's path with respect to Galaxy 28. 
    
    It was faint to start, then slowly got brighter.
    
    At around 7:21 UTC ( Nov 4 ) the unid passed by some bright stars.

    4 h 12 m R.A
    -6 deg 43 m Dec
    
    So is it a unid, are something I missed. 
    
    Not going to be tricked by a drifting geo sat, like before. It seems looks to be drifting, either
    that are it's moving to a new orbital slot.
    
    I have over 1 hour of it on video, for positional measurements, if it turns out to be a real unid.
