Okean-O - 28.9.2021 at 20.40 Ulvila Observation number 101730

Visibility Unclassified

Vesa Puistovaara, Porin Karhunvartijat

Okay, Okean-O satellite pictured.

It may be necessary to clarify this observation a little.

In early 2021, I set a desire & goal for myself to recover the ‘streak’ left by 100 different satellites in the Bear Camera. However, this is the so-called allsky camera, so it is almost impossible to capture any single phenomenon or event from the images in the camera.

Instead, I realized that I could try to get to know the world of satellites myself - when they are enough, almost annoyingly ... but also because they are quite visible celestial bodies.

The Bongaa 100 , organized in honor of Ursa's 100th anniversary, was also a motivation for me to start this almost hopeless attempt ... it remains to be seen whether a full hundred will be piled up this year;) ...

Ocean-O - no. 83/100

ps. (Skymed-4 was another alternative to this streak, but the direction of this was still south-> north)
