Satellite - 14.8.2012 at 00.01 - 14.8.2012 at 01.29 Akaa Observation number 7092

Visibility III / V


When photographing the after-vapors of the Persians, there was a considerable amount of satellite congestion in the sky at times. A few Iridium were known and expected, but for the second time I got to detect a pair of slowly moving satellites + a few others came into the same picture. The satellite pair photo was taken at 01.28 in the direction of the constellations of Pegasus and Pisces. After taking the picture, the satellite pair brightened up a bit more.
