Venus Has Landed..!
I spotted Venus shining bight early tonight but couldn't see many other stars. All the same I set my old Huawei P20 out in the garden on a tripod and forgot about it. It was set on Star Trails mode.
One hour forty-seven minutes later, after having a Chinese takeaway, I brought the phone in. This is what I got.
The first thing that stood out was the impression Venus had crashed into my neighbours house and burst into flames. It is in fact a garden light shining on some smoke from a central heating exhaust pipe...
When I look at the image file on my PC I can count at least 12 flying objects, most being passing planes but some might be satellites. Other specs of light I can't account for unless my lens was dusty.
