Satellite - 6.2.2023 at 05.26 Kokkola Observation number 111905

Visibility III / V

Pentti Ketola, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

There was a full moon in Kokkola and a quiet night, so I started the timer photography session at half past four and there were 681 raps.
Otava aligned this satellite quite nicely, but the direction did not match Heavens Above's drawings..

Tässä voisi olla kyseessä Saocom 1-A (2018-076A, 43641), joka vaikuttaisi kulkeneen juuri tuota reittiä pitkin noin minuutin erolla ilmoitetusta ajasta. Kyseessä on vuonna 2018 avaruuteen laukaistu kookas tutkakartoitus (SAR) satelliitti. Havaintohetkellä se oli noin 630 km korkeudessa.
