This morning the alarm woke me up at 04:45 am to capture this beautiful Iridium Flare, that had a magnitude of -7.5. It was some time since I managed to take a picture of one of them, so I decided to merge this event with my second startrail ever, taken just after the Flare. There are 60 shots of 1 minute lenght, joined and elaborated with the usual softwares, with the Flare in the first frame. Surely taking those pictures with the open window and 3°C (37°F) was surely a test, but that lead to a good result.
