About your image or observation: I looked at the ephemerids of the flyby and realized it would cross a region I've been photographing recently at the Blue Horsehead Nebula (IC4592). I pointed the telescope and trusted newtons laws... Sure enough, at 1:40AM local time in Porto Feliz, SP, Brazil the BepiColombo craft passed trough the field.
