Satellite - 22.4.2023 at 23.34 - 23.4.2023 at 03.01 Helsinki Observation number 115820

Visibility III / V

I set the camera to record the series because it was the maximum of the lyrid swarm. And quite a lot caught the cell, mostly satellites. I will put two pictures according to my observation: picture 1 is a compilation of approx. 60 satellite frames. The picture is not very high-quality because I only added streaks caused by satellites to one still picture. That's why it has so many small millimeter-long cross lines. If I had stacked these images as they are, it would only show semicircle-shaped streaks of stars. I didn't even try to find out the names of the satellites when there were so many of them. In the second picture, I have compiled only the squares that possibly have lyrids without being completely sure about it. The selection criteria were the shape of the streak and the fact that there were not many parallel streaks in a row like in the case of satellites.
