    Thank you for this info,
    I have received and investigated Babak Tafreshi's images.
    Two of his images seem to contain a long trail - we expected
    (at least) two satellites (+rocket) from this launch -
    and a 30s exposure should give a shorter trail.
    So my conclusion is that it shows (at least) two satellites
    trailing each other. The last picture (15s) seems to show
    an interrupted track (two objects trailing), but also one
    slightly offset.
    I would have expected the rocket (brighter) to be
    visible at the pointed tip of the cloud, but can't see it.
    If we can get times to the nearest second, or at least
    interval between images, we can improve the orbit determinations.

    Dear All,
    We have received a set of new reports of observation about Iranian Mystery
    Some witnesses from Saadat Shahr (30.202 N, 53.180 E) , Arak (34.089 N ,
    49.696E) , Krmanshah (34.314N, 47.065 E), reported that they saw 2,3 and in
    one case 4 bright point under the cloud that moving with it.
    I don’t receive any photo of these event but in any city more than one
    observer report this multi bright points.
    Babak A.Tafreshi ,Oshin Zakarian and I, in Tehran (Dizin) couldn’t saw the
    bright point during observation and we find it in photos.
    So I think may be it is important to analysis of this event.
    Is there any explanation about few bright points in this case?
    Tehran (35.672N, 51.424E )
