In this activity, students use web-based resources to help them spot and learn more about artificial satellites as they move across the sky.
By the end of this activity, students should be able to:
- use selected internet resources to further their knowledge about satellites and their orbits
- use some of the terminology associated with satellite spotting
- discuss why we can see some satellites more easily than others.
