Satellite - 28.3.2014 at 23.55 Vaasa Observation number 23428

Visibility Unclassified

Tommi Järvilehto, Vaasan Andromeda

n.-7 mag Iridium flare was visible dazzlingly in the middle of the city. Also pictured in Jupter Gemini.

Digital paperback rap. I was a little late in timing + 2s trigger delay. For this reason, the flare is not symmetrical in the figure.
