Starlink-satelliitteja - 14.8.2022 at 02.23 - 14.8.2022 at 02.24 Seinäjoki Observation number 108638

Visibility IV / V

The intention was to shoot the Perseids, but laziness struck and I tuned the camera to the south-west facing terrace to take a random video. The idea was that if a shooting star were to catch on. I only noticed on Monday that these starlinks were detected and only then did I check what has been caught on the videos. Nicely, this time it was the luck of the draw :)

After the Starlinks, there is something flashing on the same track, maybe some scrap related to this launch.

On Tuesday night, I tried to take pictures of these on purpose, but visually I couldn't see anything. However, the video was captured, but really dimly. I will post my own report on this later.
