First day in weeks without rain, beautiful clear skys so I went out to see if I could capture a IRIDIUM Flare and got a lucky shot of another Flare over the Moon.

This was by chance saw it moving and swung the camera over and shot a 30sec exposure of it over the Moon. ALOS (DAICHI) a Japanese global mapping satellite

IRIDIUM 61 60 sec exposure.
Enjoyed seeing two flares and the ISS twice in one evening. If it was not freezing I would have had the scope out.

Two great shots Dave. Liking Orion through the tree too. Is that another streak on the left edge beside the tree, or just a reflection?

Hello Patthehorse,

Just checked the RAW image - good catch it is a plane coming into Columbus Airport.

Thanks for the compliment.

Dave

Any chance of reposting these images using an alternative to photo bucket who have blocked these images ?
Imgbox is good and easy to use.
