    Brilliant flare from NanoSail-D over Finland. I saw it in Perseus near
    the zenith as it brightened to negative magnitude, clearly brighter
    than any star in Perseus or Orion. Could have been even brighter than
    Sirius at the peak.
    This picture is taken remotely from Nyrölä Observatory about 30 km
    North from me. Picture was taken with Canon EOS 350D and 8 mm Samyang
    fisheye, 30 second exposure starting at 16:57:40 UT.
