Observation details

Caught a quick glimpse of a falcon passing quickly overhead and fumbled for the camera. Streaking below was very thin and so it showed a lighter colored underside that I initially thought good for PEFA. I was flying away from me and I could not get a look at the head. Poor photo shows bands in the tail and no dark helmet so good for Merlin.
