Video: SkyCanvas to paint “the night sky with shooting stars”

The Japanese company ALE Co., Ltd. is developing a small satellite that will release projectiles to create artificial meteors for entertainment spectacles: Our “Sky Canvas” project paints the night sky with shooting stars –

Feasibility and Milestones:

We are aiming to launch our first satellite in the latter half of 2017 and begin servicing in 2018. A new satellite will be launched every year following the first satellite.

The cost for a shooting star display would be similar to that of a fireworks event.
