How to spy on the spies

Some of the most expensive and secretive spy activity takes place in broad daylight. In the movie Enemy of the State, we saw a fictious view of what government satelites could see on the ground. But it is so expensive precisely because it does involve satelites and secrecy. You might not have the big budgets, but you do have an advantage. You can spy back on the satelites from the comfort of earth.

Wired.com tells us of the counter spies. They have modified telescopes to track and follow unknown satelites. Then using image enhancing techniques they make some pretty impressive movies.

The methods they use and the software they have written are available to any of us that wish to join in. The pictures they have taken are very cool.

We can join in, but it does require a budget.
