Satellite - 22.3.2023 at 01.50 Kempele Observation number 113631

Visibility II / V

To the rhythm of the aurora borealis, it was getting colder outside and it was frosty and foggy as well.

When photographing and enlarging the image, you could marvel at the string of lines. There, I had time to wonder during several pictures without really realizing anything, except that the queue so-called I got longer without realizing that the queue got shorter for the last picture.

Fortunately, the pictures were not deleted immediately. It only became clear later that the Starlink satellites are in line to orbit the earth and luckily the exposure time was short so that they didn't end up as a long, boring single streak or the result would have been a dense cluster of long streaks.

Well, filming the aurora borealis continued and apparently the satellites got brighter after making the round again, but we were already home when the aurora borealis dimmed and it was a shame to have a camera in that freezing cold. Of course, the cameraman himself was shivering from the cold.
