    Hi all;
    
    Fernando Cabrerizo, an astrophotographer made a great shot of entry-leaving
    shadow of geo satellites. It was published in a famous blog called "El
    navegante" by Manu Arregi, that I had the honour to met him some weeks ago:
    http://blogs.elcorreo.com/el-navegante/2013/10/07/los-satelites-geosincronos-cazados/
    
    So I asked to Fernando to send me a full video,(with better quality than
    the published one) where I extracted and identified the following
    screenshots:

    After that I measured positions and flares of the classified objects, with
    not the best accuracy:

    Some of them were  a little bit off. Mike's integrated file worked great.
    Catched also Unknown 130404 who was slowly approaching to perigee, at 17600
    Km range. Was some seconds early cause his extreme low perigee.
    
    Another great photographer, Dani KXT made also great photos of GEO flaring,
    and with a nice landscape too:

    But the camera has a too big FOV so impossible to make accurate IODs.

    Tomorrow will report my today's observations, that includes a possible
    observation of the cassiope rocket.
