At the dawn of the Space Age, the US govern- ment trained citizens to search for foreign arti cial satellites. The operation was discontin- ued in 1975 but the citizens kept on observing the skys – now searching for objects that were con dentially launched. The installation com- posed of 52 small machines constantly follow the paths of the mysterious satellites and lo- cate their current whereabouts.
