ISS - 4.12.2019 at 17.52 Tampere Observation number 86748

Visibility I / V

Markku Lintinen, Tampereen Ursa

Today I experimented with images of fireball cameras found by the ISS. In the previous round, it would have been at its highest in a southerly direction, but the sky was still too clear for observation.
In this round, the ISS in the south was already overshadowed. Further west, I managed to see its movement very dimly on the screen of an insensitive infrared camera. The image shows the current situation in the live image of the camera and next to it a simulated snapshot of Sky Safari.
