Satellite "DAICHI" (ALOS)

Recommended Posts


I was taking a widefiled shot tonight by laying my DSLR camera flat on its back for a 60sec exposure at ISO400, F3.5.

To my surprise, I caught the Advanced Land Observing Satellite "DAICHI" (ALOS), which apparantly is a satellite developed to contribute to the fields of mapping, precise regional land coverage observation, disaster monitoring, and resource surveying.

See attached photo and flightpath from stellarium below.

I also noticed a second satellite low down in the photo, but I am not sure what this one is, as its not on stellarium.
