Lovejoy & what I think is a satellite

Lovejoy & what I think is a satellite

As it was a clear sky this evening, I set up the camera & tracking mount.

To my surprise, on the 1st clear image of the comet, I also captured what I am guessing must be a satellite passing across the frame.

I really don't think it's a shooting star or Iridium flare, but I can't believe my luck shooting the comet up so close [I had 400mm of lens on the camera at the time] & still getting a satellite in the frame.

Camera: Canon EOS 60D (Canon)

Focal Length: 400 mm
