    I wonder if anybody has ever made a movie of a satellite using a very
    sensitive camera that makes an image that looks similar to the compressed
    3.9 hour video of the asteroid moving though a star field as seen at
    http://science.nasa.gov/headlines/y2001/ast14dec_1.htm?list626885 ?
    Obviously the telescope would need to guide very rapidly and an image
    amplifier would be required to bring in the starry background.
    
    The movie is really neat! I can only imagine that a satellite would look
    much the same way. It would be especially cool if the brightness of the
    satellite varied as it cruised through space.
