A Satellite smile ?

Hmmmmm…...this is very close, Caroline, but not quite the answer I’m looking for. The thing in this photograph does indeed orbit the earth (a “satellite”), but it is a very specific satellite.

Who knows what we are seeing in this photograph?

Would it be a weather satellite?

Still not quite, Terry, although this orbiting body does often look at the weather. Remember that this view is from the International Space Station. What do you think we are seeing in the top of the photograph?

Is it the space shuttle

Good guesses. The ISS is powered by solar panels; does that help suggest the answer to what causes the streaks?

Is it the sun and stars?....

I’m trying again smile. Is it an AIM Satellite?

That picture is so cool! Did you know that the most dazzling time to watch it is December through March when the skies are long and dark. One time I saw a video of the Aurora Borealis and it looked exactly like that. Did you ever see the Aurora Borealis in real life? I hope I get to. LOL
