I read in Wired Magazine about amateurs tracking spy satellites. It was fascinating that the orbits of the major spy satellites are well established. I liked the detailed tracking on the recommended site, Heavens Above. The U.S. government supposedly has a new stealth satellite that reflects less. What particularly struck me was that one of the trackers thinks that the satellites purposely avoid the locations of known amateur satellite trackers. I guess it just reinforces one of my favorite paranoia adages, “Just because you think they are out to get you, doesn’t mean that they aren’t really out to get you.”
