Visualizing Space

Pulling from the N2YO Satellite api and using satellite-js to calculate and predict the paths of the satellites, this visualization shows how crowded space is. With 17,000 satellites being plotted, there is something overheard at nearly all times of day anywhere on the planet. The geosynchronous satellites for a pattern at the equator, and the routes of other satellites move in a chaotic choreography.
