By looking carefully at the pictures taken during the astronomical twilight, I notice these two satellites with a strange behavior:
- the right one seems to spin regularly, drawing a dotted path. - the left one in much more irregular, blinking shortly a few seconds apart, and flashing briefly (the bright dot along its path) above the wind turbine!

Click here to see the video of these two satellites in close-up.

And don't miss the video (gathering 1225 photos and spanning 4 hours and a half) from which this picture is created: click here. You'll see how the number of visible satellites is increasing during the astronomical twilight!
