SuitSat igen

REMEMBER SUITSAT? Three months ago, ISS astronauts hurled an old Russian spacesuit overboard. Amazingly, it is still orbiting Earth. On April 18th, Kevin Fetter videotaped "SuitSat" passing over his home in Brockville, Ontario, Canada: 1 MB movie. (The bright star in the movie is Vega.) Eventually, SuitSat will sink into Earth’s atmosphere and disintegrate in spectacular style–a fireball–but not yet!

The film is here:
