I photographed the Milky Way with a fisheye eye. In one box came a bigger ball of light, which in another picture. It is much brighter than the line in one box, which is certainly caused by the satellite.

Animoidussa giffissä oleva viiva on ilmeisesti COSMO-SkyMed 2, tuosta valopallosta en osaa sanoa tarkemmin. COSMO:t kyllä välkkyvät Iridiumien tapaan, tosin välähdykset eivät ole yhtä näyttäviä.
