If you’ve been outside on a dark night, looking up you’ve probably seen a number of satellites move across the sky. I see them in my eyepiece from time to time too; it’s a fairly common occurrence. They zip by in a hurry and I haven’t made an effort to figure out which one I saw. If you’re an imager you likely don’t want a satellite to be recorded on your camera. It happens, though, and there are image processing techniques to fix those problems.
