Description:
First real attempt at an Iridium flare photo. Not the greatest shot, Got suprised by the satellite ... snuck up on me ..... boom .... magnitude -8+ flare ! Only caught the tail. Vega is the star to the right. Iridium 80 was shortly after at low elevation. Trying again tomorrow night with #54.
