Odd Red Streak

    Not sure what this red streak is, whether it's the galaxy from the side with the yellow in the middle as the heart, or if it's just a glare.

    I believe it is a moving satellite. The images are made through blue, red, and green filters and take about 5 minutes to complete. The satellite caught some light during the red exposure, it would seem.

    jstoke has got it right . This is indeed a satellite trail.
