Shiyan 6 - 13.11.2022 at 18.37 - 13.11.2022 at 18.39 Masku Observation number 110806

Visibility III / V

A satellite that flashed clearly bright for a moment, which with Heavensat was revealed to be the Chinese Shiya 6 satellite. When looking at the pictures, there was also another wretch who seemed to be running almost the same track below. A Chinese case too, the KX-09 in short and concisely.

After all, there was quite a considerable distance difference between them, despite the apparent same line of observation images. The Shiyan 6 flew at an altitude of 512 km at a distance of 958 km and the KX-09 at an altitude of 600 km at a distance of 1102 km. They just happened to line up right at that moment.

The first one is a wide frame with 3 pieces of 20-second satellite clips, and the second is a cropped single exposure of the double clips.
