Details:
I took a set of digital images of Nano-Sail-D on 30rd of January 2011 in Rautalampi in Middle-Finland. I took 30 sec expositions of a flare 17:27:52 to 17:33:31 UTC. The sail moved from WNW to NNE, having max. altitude of 28 degrees. The max. magnitude was 3,5. I combined the photos without and with aligning the stars. Nikon D70S, 18 mm/f/3,5, ISO 1600. 30 sec expositions. 'Nanopurje' means Nanosail. Sorry for bad english.
