    Since the sky looks to be clear only for a short time, I aimed at Intelsat 1R ( 26608 ) to see how it's behaving.
    I can see an extra bright star in the sky, where Intelsat 1R is located.
    At 2:26 utc ( Jan 4 ) it looks to be brighter then mag 5
    But this is all a fiqment of my imagination.
    What a bad month Dec was for observing.
