Visibility III / V

Timo Kuhmonen, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

The Watec 910HX, which was in test use, grabbed this from the eastern sky. Checked in the video, the duration was 1.2s. Extinguished quickly, flashing in the eastern sky at an estimated altitude of 30 degrees. I headed towards the 5 o'clock direction.

Olin itsekin hyvin lähellä saada sen kuvatuksi. Olin tekemässä timelapsea juuri oikeasta suunnasta, mutta kameran akku loppui kaksi minuutia liian aikaisin. :C
