CZ-4C R7B - 17.9.2023 at 21.43 Kurikka Observation number 118827

Visibility III / V

Marko Myllyniemi, Lakeuden Ursa

On Sunday, after nightfall, I would go for a little walk outside with my camera in the hope of seeing the northern lights or something else. The only greenery was the reflection of the Seinäjoki Ideapark in the eastern-northern sky, so I decided to look at Heavens-Above to see if any suitable satellites would become visible.

It was there, between Lyra and Herkules the CZ-4C R/B should go, so the camera to the hall in that direction. And as soon as I visually noticed the movement of the aforementioned satellite where it was supposed to be, I recorded its movement in the sky with a couple of successive exposures. It was still so light that a very long exposure could not be used.
