After a while of stacking and manual editing of the best frames in a quick video of the moon with a bad camera, I managed this:

Are you kidding me? I don't understand this, it works fine for me, they haven't sent me any copyright warnings or anything. Not to mention that it is an audio-free video with footage shot entirely by me... this copyright business has gotten way out of hand.

I'll upload the original file and put the link here in a bit.

EDIT: I submitting a dispute to the claim, hopefully that will lead somewhere.

Here's a download link to the original file for those who are interested: Download

Those are spectacular. I love that you can also see the Andromeda Galaxy, just a bit above the comet. Very nice! smile

A strange satellite i saw. Apparently it was tumbling, since it flashed several times. Every picture is around 28 seconds.

Which direction did it move? (I wish I was more familiar with the constellations so I could find out from the photo). :P

If it was going from south to north or vice versa then I would bet that it was a tumbling Iridium satellite. Those are on polar orbits and have large antennae which reflect a lot of light. If the sun-antenna-observer geometry is right you can see an extremely bright 'flare' from the reflection, sometimes as bright as -9th magnitude!

You can actually get predictions for these types of events on various websites or satellite-tracking software. I've seen a few Iridium flares and they're pretty neat. smile

Edit: Oh wait a minute, that's the North Celestial pole. I see Cassiopeia and Ursa Minor.
Edit2: Whoops, not quite. That's Cassiopeia, with Andromeda to the bottom, and the NCP is out of frame above and right. So, from your location and time that must be looking to the north-west, which means the object must be moving roughly south to north.

I've seen a few as well. I like to catch them around sunset/sunrise when the sky is light because seeing a satellite under those conditions is just too cool happy
