Anybody working on this? -- we need to get a lat/long/alt/time plot to correlate with aspect angles in the Luzon images.

Is this phenomenon something that Filipino sky-watchers will have future opportunities to see and record, under the right lighting conditions--GTO/GEO launches from Wenchang?

Would those opportunities be predictable?

Yes. Any launch just after sunset from Wenchang (most GTO launches) could produce a similar effect.

Yes. Any launch just after sunset from Wenchang (most GTO launches) could produce a similar effect.

Or just before sunrise; and from most any launch site. Plenty of "UFO" sightings from our own proverbial back yard. For example, the MUOS 4 launch.
