 This is my old blog not updated anymore.

Sun glint, a very rare catch.

I used Orbitron, a satellite tracking program to get rough idea about possible sun glint, most of them were missed due to curvature of the earth and satellite elevation not matching(non  geo-stationary). Many images showed sun glare but missed the sun,, finally I managed to get two images below.
