Here is another “by chance” image. I was outside early evening to photograph the rising Moon with my Canon EOS, to get a daytime shot. I was using my phone as the remote shutter, so I wasn’t paying full attention while I stepped away to snap images. Normally during that time, I try to stand as still as I can, to minimize ground vibration.
It was only afterwards that I found this one image of a very high flying plane. If you zoom in, you an see quite a bit of detail, including an underside red light and the color of the top fin (I don’t know what the technical terms are).
I caught a bunch of interesting shots of the Moon tonight, along with a few other objects in the sky. See the tweet below for a good capture of a plane below the Moon.
A short while after the “good” plane, I caught something else, this time much higher. In the image above you can see a spec in quadrant 1. Now usually I am shrinking/compressing images for the blog, but this time I am blowing one up. Here is an expanded view of that dot:
This is likely a plane’s fuselage. But it just seemed awfully high in the sky for a commercial plane. What do you think it is? Satellite? Aliens?
