Artist's Description

An Iridium Flare (satellite) streaking across the sky near Comet Lovejoy, 29th Dec 2011 at West Beach, Robe, SA. The light on the landscape is due to the lighthouse almost directly behind me! Although I had misgivings when I turned up to start imaging but I think it adds to the effect

This is a stack of 2 images because the flare path was spread over both – indicating it probably had a long transit time therefore wouldn’t have been a meteor since the images are 30 sec each with 3 secs in between them for the camera to write them to the disk etc. These were part of a 2 hour series I took for a timelapse but I’ve also stacked them into a startrail image.

This is a stack of 2 images, each ISO 6400, 30 sec, f4 at 12mm stacked in StarStaX.
