Description:
Between 19-26 june 2017, there was a series of Iridiums flaring night after night at very similar times, barings, elevation and magnitude. This allowed for a rare opportunity to iteritively improve on the shooting of a specific Iridium frame. The direction was perfect for shooting from a great vantage point over Ben-Gurion International airport (TLV). This is one of the resulting fames - Iridium 64 and takeoff were within 10min of each other, the frames are superimposed (multiple exposure).
