About this image

Was intending to image Nova in Cassiopeia  and waiting ( in vain)  for the  cloud sheet  to break up.  Suddenly became aware of  a chain of satellites above and behind me . Swung  the Camera  round which was   at the time  mounted on  my Super polaris  mount and pressed  the  remote  release and Prayed. There were  two  trains of Satellites  and the magnitudes  they  attained was verging on 1 . They could be seen plainly though  cloud.  Constellation that  they were passing through was Bootes  and tracking just below Arcturus
