It’s crowded up there

The blog Periodic Videos has posted an interesting astronomical photo which “has been blighted by FIVE satellites streaking across the field of view.” (see Satellites in Shot).

Hadn’t thought of this before but with all that hardware in orbit astronomical photos of even a small part of the sky could easily be effected that way.

This video, Satellites (Deep Sky Videos preview), shows several example of this problem.
