Satellite - 27.1.2023 at 18.40 - 27.1.2023 at 18.42 Mäntyharju Observation number 111676

Visibility III / V

Markku Siljama, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

The comet photography was interrupted by a pair of satellites that came over Otava from the north and flew headlong towards Perseus and the moon in the south. The satellites were flying about 10 degrees apart and clearly on the same path. Polar orbiters. Brighter than Otava's main stars.

From the HA-satellite list, the closest would have been Cosmos-Skymed 1, but it doesn't seem to fit on closer inspection. The camera clock is a minute ahead.

Heavensatista löytyi omilla taidoilla ehdokkaaksi Starlinkit kaksin kappalein. Ylempi olisi Starlink 4339 ja alempi Starlink 4345. Leikkaavat juurikin tuosta kohtaa "kauhan varren" poikki lentoradat kuvan mukaisesti hieman porrastaen.
