A tricky capture for me - very late to reach darkness at this latitude now (57°N) so object was getting low into the "murk" and skipping the treeline on my WSW horizon.  Managed to catch it as it passed through a gap in the trees and happy enough with the final result.

Is there a formal way to report this observation and, if so, where, how?
