I photographed asses 11.8. 23: 00-12: 08 at 02.20. Among the three hundred pictures, four asses were found, as well as one brighter than the others 12.8. at 00.54 (Figure 1). Figures 2-4 were taken at 23.40, 00.00 and 00.41. Figure 3 also shows a satellite, your ass is just below the Dolphin constellation. At the bottom of Figure 4, a pair of asses would appear to stand out.
