Satellites Flying Over Manitoulin Island

Table of Contents

 

Most people are amazed when I show them the list of satellites that are flying over Manitoulin Island during one night.  Typically, there are 120 satellites visible to the naked eye that fly over during a 4 hour period.
International Space Station is one of the brightest objects in the sky, moving at high speed, looks like a silver dot.  With binoculars, you can make out some of the shape and detail.  There is frequent venting of gas and excess water, which forms a spectacular cloud of ice crystals.

With the dark skies on Manitoulin Island, and minimal cloud cover, viewing opportunities are maximized.
