Positions of Satellites Around Earth

This collection by Analytic Graphics Inc. shows real-time (updated every 30 seconds) positions of 13,000 satellites around the Earth. The positions come from a government-sponsored database which shows all satellites. You get the idea that our near-earth space is getting kind of cluttered don’t you? Read about space debris. Read more about this collection in the GEB post.

Please note: It may take 30-60 seconds to load in all of the satellites, depending on your connection speed. If you don’t have the plugin – watch this YouTube video.
