Real-time location tracking of satellites to visualize the importance of information technologies.

This project is inspired by the Nebraska Sky Disk, a piece of technology produced in the Bronze Age that locally predicts the summer and winter solstices and thus indicates the seasons. To these agricultural societies, knowing the seasons was crucial to survive. 

Since the last 3600 years, what has changed?

I recreated the Nebraska Sky disk, and adapted the information it displays to information that is crucial for mankind today.
In the 21st century, Satellite Disk
shows the real-time location of satellites to visualize the incredible dependance of humans on communication and information networks.

As a satellites passes overhead of the user’s real-time location, a message is sent to their phone using Twilio.
