USA 245. and Resurs 1-4 Rocket sekä SeaSat 1 - 16.3.2023 at 21.10 Kokkola Observation number 113502

Visibility III / V

Pentti Ketola, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

Last night and this morning, I photographed a total of 903 pictures with a timer.
In the first picture from last night, a fair flash that would fit well with the target STARLINK-4413 At 21:10, could Starlink flash that bright.
Also this morning two identified satellites SeaSat 1 At 3:58 and Resurs 1-4 Rocket At 3:28.

Ykköseksi sopii Starlinkin sijasta radallisesti ja ajallisesti paremmin USA 245. Hieman hämäävästi otsikossa päivämäärä pielessä noita tunnistamiasi satelliitteja ajatellen.

Tuo Resurs 1-4 Rocket kulkee näemmä Heavensatissa nimellä SL-16 R/B. Norad-luettelonumero molemmilla sama 25400.
