Description:
On the evenings of Oct. 03/04 2016 Iridiums 80/81 flared above my house at (almost) exactly the same position, time and magnitude at a 24hr interval from each other. After planning framing, calculating exposure time and hyperfocal length, I got my kids to perfom a dress rehersal on the first night (keeping totally still fo 15 sec), and then took this shot on the second.
