Venus Pleiades and Satellite

by , under Planets

Here’s a picture of Venus and the Pleiades tonight along with a satellite shooting through. The satellite was captured over the course of two frames and the gap of light in the satellite train is the quick second between exposures. The oblong shape of the planet is caused from clouds floating through the shot.

I tried finding the satellite on calsky but wasn’t able to locate it. The picture was taken at 9:45 from Freeland MD, if anyone is interested in tracking it down.
