This collection by Analytic Graphics Inc. shows real-time positions of 13,000 satellites around the Earth in Google Earth.

It’s shocking how NASA doesn’t hit any of them with their rockets.

It’s strange to think that when we’re stargazing, lots of the specs in the sky are actually satellites!

And to imagine that all of these thousands of satellites were put up only in the past few decades.

See if you have a lot of satellites above where you live!
