Outline

At the dawn of the Space Age, the US government trained citizens to search for foreign artificial satellites. The operation was discontinued in 1975 but the citizens kept on observing the skys – now searching for objects that were confidentially launched. The installation composed of 52 small machines constantly follow the paths of the mysterious satellites and locate their current whereabouts.
