Pentti Ketola, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

Kokkola 22.2.2023, I shot with a timer for 20 seconds, every morning starting at 5 in the morning, a total of 305 pictures, 15 degrees below zero..
At 5:26 the satellite passes the Otava constellation in several consecutive images.
At 5:36, in one single time frame, the satellite flashes and passes the Otava Alkaid star.
Heavens Above didn't hit the woman in the pictures.

Jälkimmäinen sitten ranskalainen vakoilusatelliitti Helios 2B, joka on tuollainen reilun neljän tonnin möhkäle. Laitteesta löytyy mm. kameraa ja infrapunakameraa. Pieneltähän tuo toki kuvassa vaikuttaa 600 kilometrin korkeudessa kulkiessaan. Hyvin vastavakoiltu...
