Double trouble in Virgo

An interesting feature on last’ nights allsky images: a double streak of light in Virgo, around 00hr40m MEST. No idea what thi smight be. There was a Starlink 2144 satellite close-by, but then again they are always close by something…

Double trouble in Virgo

Please also not that the AllSky camera has been upgraded with a IR-cut filter. Strange enought, the Baader contrast booster that was already in, did not stop infrared light. This additional IR filter (ZWO 21mm) clearly increases the image quality.

Small but bright meteor?

Last night @ 5u55m MET a small but bright streak of light is visible on the Allsky camera. Checking against Iridium flares of “Heavensabove” and with “SkySafari” did not give any satellites near that point.

To watch the whole night, please download the movie below. Lots of activity is going on, including planes but also the telescope making a meridian flip at some point.
