Double Iridium Flash over Beijing

Beijing, China

2013 March 31


From the photographer: "A very bright double Iridium Flash could be seen in this photo from Jingshan Park, nearby the Forbidden City. There are several ancient buildings there, the biggest one is Wanchun Pavilion in the right side of the view. The photo was taken by EOS 40D camera and 10mm lens. Exposure 30s and ISO400. You can see not only the Moon, Orion and some bright stars and constellations, but also the light pollution from central Beijing."
