Intriguing object spotted while looking at Saturn Friday evening

October 07, 2017 @ 01:44 By: gordon Category: Astronomy

I was up at Champlain Lookout in Gatineau Park Friday evening with my telescope to do some astrophotography. I was looking at Saturn and all of a sudden something very bright moved across the field of view from left to right (in the eyepiece). There are only two plausible explanations I can come up with…

  1. Satellite
  2. Meteor

Whatever it was, it’s definitely the most intriguing thing I’ve seen through a telescope.
