Visibility II / V

Harri Kiiskinen, Jyväskylän Sirius

Along with the comet observations, seven Starlink satellites were detected, which were visible in two consecutive 60 s exposures. I used Stellarium to identify the satellites that hit the images, and based on the observation time, it is most likely the following satellites:

· Starlink-5558 22:05:26

· Starlink-5218 22:05:41

· Starlink-5507 22:05:57

· Starlink-5498 22:06:14

· Starlink-5546 22:06:30

· Starlink-5500 22:06:45

· Starlink-5303 22:07:01

After the name of the satellite, the time when the satellite hits the image field. The comet shown in the images is C/2020 V2 (ZTF)
