This all-sky view from Brittany of France has captured two parallel flashes of Iridium satellites, each brightened to magnitude -5 (little brighter than Venus) during few seconds of the flashing. The two satellites flashed only one minute apart. Click on the pattern icon above the image to see a close view of the Iridium flash or you can enjoy this all-sky view in a Virtual Reality animation.
