Satellite BLITS-M
« on: December 05, 2017, 09:01:56 AM »
BLITS-M is the glass spherical satellite. Diameter of the satellite is 220 mm. The one half of sphere is coated by interference dielectric layers for reflecting the laser beam with wavelength 532 nm. Orbital altitude is 1500 km. The planned time of the launching is May 2018.

The satellite will rotate with speed of 10 turn per minute around the axis perpendicular to the orbital plane.

Is it possible to identify the satellite by a telescope?
