Although photography has had to move to support the camera, only note the
brightest stars. Although I'm not sure, I think it has the naked eye could
see four flash, separated by about 3-4 seconds, the first with a glow 1.5
to 2.0, the second with a brightness between 0.5 and 1, the third with a
brightness between 1.0 and 1.5, and the last with a gleam between 2.5 and
3.0, of which the camera only captured the second and third. The brightness
and size of the stars are very exaggerated after applying a particular
filter for only thus was possible to obtain at least two flash.
The only candidate something I've found is DMSP 5D-2 F13 DEB Norad
1995-015EB ID 40568, but only as a trajectory not completely coincide, and
passing just over 2º40'.
The pass I caught by chance while photographing that part of Ursa Major, at
a focal length of 134 mm (35 mm) and 16 seconds of exposure.
36.8389º, -2.4499º, Almería (Spain).
