ALOS (DAICHI) - 10.9.2016 at 21.20 Espoo Observation number 56936

Visibility Unclassified

Panu Lahtinen, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

I went through the paralympians here through the night sky camera images, and this somehow seemed so special and slow in speed (duration about 10 s) that I had to properly check if it was a fireball or a satellite. This time it was a favorable brightness for the ALOS satellite (2006-002A).
