Description:
(Not sure which Iridium category this fall's into, so just left the category as 02). I captured this Iridium Flare by complete chance, I must say. I set up my new mobile phone, with the view of trying it's new star trails feature, I positioned my device to focus on Polaris which was roughly right above my home. Then left the device to capture, for almost a couple of hours. Once concluded, I spotted the flare to my surprise, not knowing what it was. After some research I found it to be my first capture of an Iridium Flare, and a memory I shall treasure forever!
