    Using 3D viewing I find seven "dots" (a bit fuzzy) that appear to have
    moved ~4 pixels less than the stars between each pair.
    Geostationary or hot pixels ?
    However, if my mental arithmetic is correct, I find that this corresponds
    to only 11s of star movement.
    
    Copy of image with markings, and request for detail images sent to Michael.
