I was waiting for the Nano-Sail D to fly over, through Orion, but I didn’t see it. I had to go to a meeting, so I used my smaller Canon A40 to take this photo using my Subaru as a ‘tripod’. If you click on the photo, you can see that my aim was not steady. I hoped to get a photo of the Nano-Sail, but if it came by, it may have been too faint for this camera to pick up. While I recorded stars as bright as the Nano-Sail, the camera exposure of 15 seconds is enough to record the stars, but maybe not long enough for the Nano-Sail, which would have moved across the frame.
Where to look for Saturn in the sky…
Saturn is low in the southwestern sky just after sunset. It is up for a few hours after sunset.
