StarGrizzly, welcome to Asterisk!
A closed mouth gathers no foot.
Hello. Has anyone observed the three lights - between 1:40 and 1:43 - moving away ? I'd like to know what they are, if someone could tell me.Thanks!
Which lights are you talking about? (specify the location in the frame?) I noted a very bright region of the aurora moving from left to right over the horizon, but didn't note anything particularly strange. (I.e. it didn't seem to be moving relative to the Earth.) Ah, on closer look, there appear to be three satellites moving from left to right in the upper right quadrant of that section. Was that what you meant? Remember that this is time-lapse so they are actually moving relatively slowly if we can see them move in the video.

Just call me "geck" because "zilla" is like a last name.
