Iridium 53 - 17.1.2016 at 18.00 Espoo Observation number 47653

Visibility III / V

Janne Sievinen, Ursa (Helsinki)

Iridium 53 flashed with a brightness of about -6.8 magnitude above the Suomenoja power plant. It looked great, even though the sky was shrouded in some kind of icing mist, a little more modestly in the photo, of course. White balance and histograms adjusted with Lightroom.
