James Webb -avaruusteleskooppi - 23.1.2022 at 00.02 - 23.1.2022 at 00.07 Fregenal de la Sierra, Espanja Observation number 104085

Visibility I / V

Tapio Lahtinen, Tampereen Ursa

I was still trying to get the JWST space telescope described on the way to the L2 orbit and succeeded.
It is dimmed from the last observation - I now measured the brightness as mag 16.25.

At the time of the photograph, JWST was approximately 1,427,000 km from Earth and the distance to the L2 track is still approximately 39,000 km.

An apparently rotating satellite was also left in the boxes (second image).
