Shape: Light
Bright geosynchronus light that appears every morning.

On 01/01/06 at approx. 0445, my partner and I observed for the first time a bright "light" in the eastern sky from our location. At first, we thought it was a large aircraft with it's landing lights on, heading westbound toward Tulsa International Airport. As we continued to observe the light, we noticed that it did not move. We were able to get out of our car and watch the light for an hour, and it never changed position in relation to us, the horizon, or any other observable object, while the stars progressed across the sky as normal.

The object is obviously geosynchronus as it has been in the same position in the sky visible at the same basic time every morning for three months. The only time it is otherwise visible is on Monday nights, when it is visible all night long. It is not visible any other night of the week until approx. 04:30am.

I have written NASA asking what this might be, but have received no response from them. At leasat ten other people have observed this same phenomenon, almost all are law enforcement officers as I. i believe it may simply be a satellite, but it's position does not match anything I have been able to find on sites such as NASA's downloadable satellite tracking software.

Not saying it's a spaceship or anything, but no one seems to be willing to tell me what it is.
