Description

While inspecting the raw images of the night of November 19-20 for processing, I noticed something particular. Some raw images show a special object whose nature I do not understand.

I made a little animated gif with the images that have not undergone any special processing, except the conversion to gif format.

Location: Reunion Island
Date and Time GMT: November 19 Time 20:29 to 20:33

ISO 3200 - 30s

EDIT : Here is the information provided by Den: it is the Japanese geostationary satellite "in perdition" ETS 6, its nickname Kiku 6. http://space.skyrocket.de/doc_sdat/ets-6.htm

Its apparent "speed" is actually the effect of the rotation of the Earth.

I made a complement to the title.
