Real Time positions of Satellites

Ok. So everyone knows that there are satellites out there in the sky above the earth.


So, when you think about satellites you probably think of satellites for TV such as DISH network, and weather satellites, and Ham radio folks have a few, and hmmm.  What else?

Probably there aren't very many, you say. 

Well, guess what -- there are a LOT of satellites!

The number as of two or so years ago was about 13,000.

Thirteen thousand ?????  How can this be?

Well, I don't know how or why there are so many but this 1 minute 13 seconds video will show you the satellites and their locations.  

This is amazing. Who would have thought?
