Welcome to Satellite Map.

Helium is abundant in space, where it's produced as a product of the fusion reaction inside stars such as the sun. The naturally occurring helium on Earth, though, comes from a different sort of process. Deep inside the Earth, radioactive elements such as uranium and thorium decay and turn into other elements. Although helium is the second most abundant element in the universe, most of it in the Earth's atmosphere bleeds off into space. Helium used for industrial purposes is a byproduct of natural gas.

This application maps the current location of about 19,300 manmade objects orbiting the Earth.

Use the Preset dropdown menu to conveniently select a subset of satellites, for example, Russian or low earth orbit satellites. Selected satellites are colored red.

The buttons and sliders below the Preset dropdown can be used to build your own selection or refine a preset selection. It is possible to construct quite complex selections, for example, American satellites in low earth orbit (apogee/perigee <2,000km) that are not junk.


To clear the selection, click Presets > Reset All.

Helium In Outer Space

Clicking on an individual satellite in the 3d view will display a panel with detailed information. Links to NASA's website are provided for additional information. In addition to displaying name and orbital details, the 3d view displays the satellite's future trajectory with respect to the Earth's surface. By default the trajectory is for one day but this can be changed to either one hour or one week.

Perhaps the most surprising fact for users of this application is the large proportion of orbital objects classified as junk. Approximately 3/4 of manmade objects are spent rocket boosters or debris from satellite collisions.

It is important to note that satellite positions are derived from an ephemeris database downloaded in July 14, 2020. As such this app will not display satellites launched since then or reflect intentionally or unintentionally orbital adjustments. Similarly atmospheric friction and gravitational forces are likely to influence orbital position. However the different between projected and actual position is unlikely to be perceptible at the scale used.
