Bright satellites and Iridiumflares

EN-98 FireballsPosted by Koen Miskotte Mon, May 13, 2013 09:52:46

In the period of 27 april until 10 may 2013 my all sky camera captured many bright satellites and Iridium flares. I made a composition of all these satellites. I used Call sky and Heaven Above for classification of the satellites. If I could not identify the satelliets, only date and time is given.
