Satellites in Shot

My new space series Deep Sky Videos is due to launch in January.

But production has already started. and today I shared a little preview.

The preview included this photo, which I think is amazing.

The image is a five-minute exposure of the Andromeda Galaxy, taken by top astrophotographer Nik Szymanek.

But his photo has been blighted by FIVE satellites streaking across the field of view.

One of them streak "through" the core of Andromeda (though of course the satellite is in the foreground - by about 2.5 million light-years).

Here's the video in which we see numerous examples of satellites popping up in pictures.

Don't miss Deep Sky Videos when it starts.
