Olikohan muuten viime yönä myös joku satelliitin (iridium?) kirkastuminen, kun olin kuvaamassa ja seurailin repostilannetta. Taisin ottaa kuvan talteenkin. No noita tapahtuu kyllä suunnilleen joka yö.

Hankasalmella oli HeavensAbove:n mukaan seitsemän Iridium-flarea viime yönä. Ainakin osa näkyy timelapse-videollakin. En ole viitsinyt tehdä niistä erillisiä havaintoja, ainoastaan poikkeuksellisen kirkkaat ei-iridiumit olen raportoinut.

noin puolen neljän aikaan kirkas valopallo putosi metsän taa. Olimme aamupostia jakamassa. Näytti putoavan Puumalan suuntaan. Asumme Sulkavalla
