Rocket-related clouds - 11.11.2016 at 23.28 - 11.11.2016 at 23.37 Helsinki Observation number 58352

Visibility IV / V

After seeing the observation of the rocket launch on the Sky Watch page, I checked my last photos once again. And from 11.28 pm there was a line of light moving slowly to the north. I didn’t pay attention to it right away because I thought it was an airplane. However, airplanes "disappear" from the images much faster and most often leave red-white dots (as in Figure 2, here the rocket line in question is above the cranes). However, this streak of light was visible for less than 10 minutes. In Figure 3, the light line is no longer very faintly above the smaller chimney.
