Satelite images ???
      #76092 - Tue Aug 07 2007 06:00 PM

This is more a tecnical question regarding the satelite imegery of today (GOES-EAST : central Atlantic view).

I noticed something on the pictures 15:45 UTC till 16:45 UTC.

In the visible sector there appears to be a bright flash around 67W 10N that wanders to the west till 74W 7N.
In the IR sector it can be seen as a read signature.

I'm suspecting a satelite passby since it seem to be out of focus in the IR sector. Wonder if anybody could confirm this or give a different expanation...
