Quite an interesting article this weekend When Secret Sats Spy on Us, Monsieur Legault Spies Back - Wired danger room. Thierry Legault, famous for a number of very great images of space phenomena is also busy tracking things in space which you're not supposed to know are there. Wired did a great article on the satellite-tracking community a few years ago: I Spy: Amateur satellite spotters can track everything government spymasters blast into orbit. Except the stealth bird codenamed Misty. Wired issue 14.02. The persistence of the spy satellite-tracking community combined with the telescope photography skills of Thierry Legault make for some very nice videos. I guess the owners of the spy satellites aren't too happy about these videos. They would be even more unhappy when the videos would be combined with the latest orbital data.
