Geostationary satellites

Tuesday, October 21st 2014

I'd noticed the geostationary satellites a couple of times before on my photographs from Paranal. With this photograph I set out to capture as many as I could and then to identify them. I got a list of all of them, and then worked out the spatial scale of my photo and which direction I was pointing, so that I could work out which point of light was which satellite.
