Rocket-related clouds - 8.10.2018 at 06.42 - 8.10.2018 at 06.44 Orimattila, Artjärvi, Tähtikallio Observation number 78426

Visibility II / V

Veikko Mäkelä, Matias Takala, Ursa (Helsinki)

Ursan Tähtikallio's all-sky camera images were also imprinted after the Falcon 9 rocket phase. It appears in images in three consecutive minutes as a hazy spot. Due to the whitening of the morning, the shutter speeds are already short.

It could be concluded from the trajectory that the rocket phase would also appear before and after these images, but nothing stood out from the images at 3.40 and 3.45.

The last picture is a newly smoked animation from 3.40 to 3.45.
