It was creepy when it was only Sputnik up there. Now? Our global communications depend on them. How times change!
Those are fireflies…
More satellites than stars. Oh well! Progress. (I guess) :o/
And they see you…
Look up the schedule for when the International Space Station flies over your area. I did it a couple years ago. It said it would come from the West at about 4:17 am. Fortunately we had a clear night. I stood out and watched and at exactly the time and direction it listed, it flew over my house. I watched till it disappeared over the mountains. Really cool. It looked like a fast moving star.
Wait until every company with two cents puts clouds of micro-sats in orbit.
I remember watching Sputnik.
Anybody here remember going out at night in ’61 and looking for “Echo”?
I see satellites all the time — most fly South to North but recently I saw some flying North to South while some were flying South to North — pretty cool stuff happening up there.Keep Looking Up!!!
I remember our local newspaper used to publish the times to view TELSTAR when it came overhead
and we’re almost to the point where the satellites will be able to look inside your home from space…literally…talk about ‘1984’
I got a phone text saying stop pointing at me.
After SpaceX and Amazon finish launching the 7k+ satellites, it’s gonna be pretty common sighting.
“Paranoia runs deep in the Heartland; but I think it’s all overdone.”
an all watching YOU
Nope, it’s a sign that we’re becoming a spacefaring civilization.
Everything is relative.
When I was a kid, the Echo II communications satellite flew over where we were sledding. I don’t remember how I found out what it was (it took a lot of library time; I didn’t know about the sky apps) but it was cool.
I am the eye in sky, looking at YOOOU, I CAN read your mind. I am the maker of rules, dealing with fools , I can cheat you blind
Just so happens ISS will be visible in the PNW this evening between 1-1:15 am from the West. Hope it’s clear. Iffy up here in the Northwest.
Hopefully the satellite billboards never happen
