Daniel Fischer

LightSail from Germany
Imaged on June 14. Said Fischer: "Visually it was spectacular, at times as bright as the brightest stars, then practically invisible, and racing through the sky really fast on its low, decaying orbit. Much more impressive than any ISS pass - and the first time I saw a spacecraft less than 24 hours before reentry."
