Photographing Spy Satellites ~ Astrophotographer Thierry Legault

Premier astrophotographer Thierry Legault talks about tracking spy satellites in the sky and his quest to do "things that nobody has done before."He painstakingly chronicling the orbits of planets, distant galaxies, spaceships, and—to the chagrin of the intelligence community—of the spy satellites we’re not supposed to see.

At Wallaman Falls, between Townsville and Cairns, in north Queensland, the Full Moon enlightens the landscape and its light, combined with the water of the fall, creates a Moonbow. A bright shooting star crosses the Milky Way during the exposure.
