Iridium 64 photographed over Keilalahti. The flash was reasonably bright, about -6.4 according to the tables, and stood out nicely even in the flood of light around the urban environment. Below is the constellation of the Driver and Capella at its brightest. White balance and histogram adjustments with Lightroom.
