Lacrosse 5 passing alpha Persei

Earlier this week, on February the 24th, the generally very bad weather of this moment gave way to a short period of clear skies after dusk. This allowed me to obtain some positions on the bright SAR satellite Lacrosse 5 (05-016A) and it's spent rocket booster Lacrosse 5r (05-016B).

Below is an image showing Lacrosse 5 passing close to alpha Persei and the alpha Persei star association.
