I used the coordinates of the photo and the time from the metadata, and then went to Heavens Above to check on whether the bright flash could have been an Iridium flare. They back-predict a really bright flare (WOW! Magnitude -6.7!) at that location less than 20 minutes before the photo time (which comes from just one of the images). The actual time of the flare could be off several minutes and could have been located a mile or more away, so the actual time and and actual brightness could vary.

Mone de Castro Thank you for your compliment and fav ~ Best wishes ~ nick

Sounds like some politicians I know.

You can just imagine him licking his lips :-)

Gv_AN, I have selected this as the new avatar for the POTD - Photo of the Day group. I thank you for participating in this group!

Johann50, I just want to give a polite reminder that the group POTD - Photo of the Day only allows one photo each day.

Beautiful shot !! L+F Greetings. DOM

So.... what you think Tom? Are you happy with this, I would be. The North Star is nice and visible.

I'd say about 15 shots stacked.

There are three or four astro shots on this page of mine if your interested in ideas to develop this theme.
