    I played back, the captured video.
    Based on the fact, the unid was observed near Galaxy 3C ( 27745 ) where spaceway 3 is going to be
    parked, and not observed where it's last tle placed it, the unid was Spaceway 3 ( 32018 ).
    Well I won't be fooled anymore, now that's finally at it's orbital slot. They sure took, there
    time with it.
    I caught it, just as it was flaring up.
