NOAA 9 - 13.8.2015 at 03.05 Espoo Observation number 40836

Visibility III / V

At the end of the Perseid shooting tour, I photographed east in the direction of the driver’s constellation. In the midst of a 15-second exposure at 3:05 a.m., I noticed a stationary spot-point brightness lasting about a couple of seconds between the driver's beta and iota stars. Presumably it was a NOAA 9 satellite (thanks to Ursa for the configuration help).
