Tonight, the Iridium satellites 7 and 51 will flash one minute apart. I tell myself it should be great as a virtual reality view...
A few minutes before the event, I'm ready. The night isn't full and the sky is dark blue. I launch the pose when I think the flash will start. The camera exposure time is set to 15 s. Everything is OK and the magnitude -5 flares are great.
Then I realize the other picture in order to create this virtual reality view. This picture is the composite of the two individual photos taken with a fish-eye lens.
