Details:
NanoSAil-D satellite was imaged low on the Northern sky in Finland. Image was taken by the robotic Canon 350D allsky camera of Nyrola observatory on Jan 30, 2011 with 30 second exposure staring at 17:31:50 UTC. The camera takes images every 5 minutes through a fish eye lens. On the previous night the satellite was not seen during a similar pass. The satellite must have been quite bright to record such a bright trail.
