Iridium is a US telecommunications company which used a constellation (group) of relatively small satellites to provide a mobile telephone system with handsets which could work anywhere on the Earth's surface.
The Iridium Satellite Constellation is a system of 66 active communication satellites and spares around the Earth and should be visible this coming week. Below you can see what to expect!
Legault also shared a another recent video he shot of the Chinese Yaogan 6 satellite. “It is probably out of control, quickly tumbling with very bright and short flashes,” Legault said, and it has been tumbling for about a year. Yaogan 6 is a radar reconnaissance satellite launched by China in 2009. Legault said he did the tracking by hand with professional video tripod with a fluid head.
