A Dove satellite has captured the breathtaking moment a Soyuz rocket blasted off from Russia to deliver 48 new satellites to orbit.
The rocket carried Planet Labs’ fleet of Flock 2K satellites, to join the ever-growing ‘Dove constellation’ monitoring Earth from miles above.
Sony SRS-XB40 has a built-in multi-coloured line light, speaker lights and a flashing strobe.
It features 24 hours of battery life and claims to be a 'mini-disco on the move'.
Then, while travelling at about seven kilometers per second (or 15,658 mph), the satellite recorded the fixed target one image per second.
Then, the Imaging Team stitched the frames together.
While it lasts just a few seconds, the footage covers roughly two and a half minutes in real time.‘From an operational standpoint, these on-orbit maneuvers were exciting to perform,’ Vincent Beukelaers of Planet Labs wrote in a blog post.
