    Default Please help to recognize a structure



    Hello Dear Enthusiasts!

    I'm a newbie, could you please help me to recognize the structure in the neighborhood of the Magellanic Clouds?



    Thank you!

    Thanks!

    As I said, I'm a complete newbie. Thank you for the starting point of my journey, if you call it string of stars, probably this is it =) I will read about it.

    Thank you again!

    Hey there! You're talking about that pretty straight line of dots? Depending on the length and number of exposures in that image, could it be a satellite passing through your view?

    I'm a newbie too, so take what I say with a grain of salt!

    I think it is more likely to be an aircraft. Satellites usually leave a straight line.

    If it's a tumbling satellite or rocket body, I will identify it for you if you post the location and time the image was taken.

    BTW, nice image of the Magellanic Clouds .
