Satellite - 3.10.2013 at 21.57 Akaa Observation number 18672

Visibility V / V

I had come to shoot Iridium 7, but to my surprise I got two iridium in the same picture. The other does not know what it was. In the sky, they moved a few degrees apart, first the one ahead was brightened, and during the same exposure (15 sec) another. According to HA, the brightness of Iridium 7 was -7.3.
