2016.10.22 Orionid meteor? pretty sure unfortunately not!

Recommended Posts

Up nice and early and surprised to see something resembling a clear(ish) sky! Saw quite a few orionids meteors, between 5:50-6:30.  One in particular was very bright heading towards Cassiopeia.

I thought i had captured one buzzing the Pleiades,  but i am prettty sure its a satellite or an iridium flare :hmh: Just a "rough and ready" image from the camera, excuse the hot pixels etc...
