    Default New User asking opinion



    I made a video of several night sky shots I took. My lens was some out of focus but I didn't realize until later. Please don't down my photography I know it is messed up. On July 30 I was attempting to capture pics of some streaks of the Southern Aquarids. Later, while looking at my pics and realizing I had it out of focus, I noticed something that moved really slow. Or, it is very large and far away moving fast and appeared to be tumbling. Sometimes it was reflecting light my way and sometimes not. I am thinking asteroid or space junk. I believe it was not a satellite. Occasionally one can be seen streaking by along with an airplane. My exposures were from 10-15 seconds. The 1st pic in the sequence was 7/30/2019 at 2:08am Eastern Time and the last one was taken at 2:36 am. The 1st 6 pics are 20 seconds each, next 50 are 15 seconds each and the remaining 58 pics are 10 seconds each if for any reason someone would want to know that. It is located on the left side, moving at a downward angle, and you may have to play it a couple of times to see it. I am just asking what people think this object might be.

    Thanks for opinions.

    I think it should work now. I had it uploaded as a private video and changed it to public.

    I see something moving at 0:26 in the video, right of centre. Since it is a still frame, there is no way to tell which direction it is moving, how fast it is moving, or anything else. Most likely a satellite, though possibly a plane.

    If that is not what you are asking about, please give the time cue in the video, or, better still, post the still(s) with the object in it.
