Caption: Timelapse footage of a satellite leaving a flashing trail across the sky, above the Isaac Newton Telescope, Roque de los Muchachos Observatory, La Palma, Canary Islands, Spain. Many satellites appear to flash as they move across the sky, as their rotation causes different amounts of sunlight to be reflected towards the ground.
