Continuous sultry cloudy day, finally there is an empty window period, just in time for an iridium flash, appeared near the moon. With the fall of Iridium 61 a few days ago, a generation of Iridium has only 97 left to work. Iridium flashes, an artificial celestial phenomenon, will disappear completely with its final fall. Perhaps this will be the only and last time I have ever photographed Iridium with a moon.

Star shooting begins with seeing a red meteor with a green wake. The sea at night is somewhat frightening, especially when the tide rapidly invades the land after the moon falls.
