Hi There,

I'm relatively new to astrophotography (just had my second session). I noticed several light streaks in my photos which I assumed to be satellites as they were straight (first pic), but this time I also have a curved one (second, bottom right). Anyone know what they are?

Many Thanks

The first is a satellite but the second does NOT have the red and green lights typical of an aircraft in flight. Maybe it is a far away contrail.
