Entered on: or Google up Key Hole-12 satellite, because that**Q**s what many of those images are of KH-12 or higher. The higher in the KH series do have stealth capabilities - except to visual - which explains why you can photograph them. Some are being repositioned to enhance the surveillance capabilities of Homeland Security (note: the department has received permission to use the sky eyes on Americans).

Well, this can all be verified. Get yourself an 11 inch or bigger scope with a fast readout camera that uses USB 2.0 or better tata thruput. The mount, scope and cam will start out ~4 - 5 kilo-bucks US.
As for the CH-47 taking **Q**photos**Q**. It**Q**s broad daylight! YOU DON**QQ**T NEED A FLASH! A flash could not even cover the subject with enough light from that distance if one were needed! Any half baked IR cam from the 80**Q**s could capture his image day or night.

I**Q**ve seen a lot of satellites in my time. I**Q**ve tracked NOSS clusters, and recovered disbanded VELA sats from the 1950**Q**s. Lot**Q**s of people are doing this and getting some awsome results. I also suggues the see-sat group on technical help in doing this. Is this all true? Go out and find out for yourself!
