    I have a strange trail on my CCD image taken last night (Aug 19, 2013 07:30
    UT) from Chile (68W, 23S). The image has 50 bright dots in a line across
    the 12 arc minute field. The exposure time was 90 seconds. The telescope
    was pointing high on the Eastern sky (Az:62, El:49 ) and object has moved
    roughly in the E-W direction. I have seen many satellite and airplane
    trails on my CCD images, but this is something new.
    Any ideas?
