Visibility IV / V

Petri Martikainen, Ursa (Itä-Suomi)

Gopro shot 30 sec exposures in the north direction at 00:20-03:20. The image taken at around 00:29 shows a remarkably bright satellite flash. The satellite has moved from right to left in the picture. Tero Sipinen kindly identified it as the satellite IGS 8A. There are also three previousobservations of the same satellite. Picture 1 is the original and the second is a cropped version. The third picture shows the northern lights a couple of hours later.
