Leo Trails with guest

Recommended Posts

206 images, 30s, f/5 ISO100 @23mm, Canon 60d, EFS17-55 f/2.8 IS

I cannot find what the flaring satellite might be... looks like an Iridium flare... but I can't find any details for them, and it looks like they may have all been deorbited and replaced with IridiumNEXT which don't flare. Anyone have any clue, the image with the satellite was about 2308 last night from north West Sussex. I didn't see the flare, as I wasn't paying attention.

To help try and pin this down...The flare passes through the rear of Leo, passing North to South (as best I can make it, based on camera image sequence). The full flare, no repairs, but quite heavy curves, and the first image of the two (of course it bridged two). I think, the flare passed right past Chertain
