Very bright OTV 4 pass, almost from its shadow exit to just 10º above the
horizon This has been around magnitude 0 and at some point as it moved
away, even up to magnitude -1
I leave a lot of photos, all slightly moved, some only at the beginning of
the path, so the end, given its brightness, is easily visible. I am
especially struck by the perfectly cut line from the end of the last 2-3
photographs, as I usually see them curved. To say that the exposure times
vary between 8 and 12 seconds, those that go away I think they were of 12
seconds, and focal length of about 100 mm (for 35 mm). I was also surprised
to keep the shine for so long, I remembered once that maneuvered by May, so
if you can, before you get lost in search of the afternoon take a look
(Indicate that tomorrow I will not be able to observe). Also add that the
pass by my position seems more or less in time, but just in case.
The day and time in the name of the file in astrometry, but subtract 2
hours to find UTC. However, the observation was approximately between 04:40
UTC and 04:43 UTC.
04:40:14 UTC-04:40:22 UTC,  04:40:42 UTC-04:40:50 UTC,  04:41:30
UTC-04:41:38 UTC,  04:42:04 UTC-04:42:16 UTC,  04:42:36 UTC-04:42:48 UTC,
 04:43:05 UTC-04:43:17 UTC







In the first photograph also appears Atlas Centaur R / B (06155) that
shortly after reached magnitude +2
