Re: Quick flash & nova like satellites?

There are many high altitude objects in that area, but no high iridiums
Many old Molniya type objects are non-functioning and rotating.
There were two at the time(s) in Cassiopeia - Molniya 1-56 and Molniya
1-88, but both were left of alpha-beta.

OTOH many low altitude satellites that are rotating are likely to give
short, non-repeating flashes, since they move faster and thus change their
obs-sat-sun angle more quickly.

It could help if you could email me (or post) your images - in full
resolution with the camera times still present in IPTC, or detail
selections with the times included.
