The Orbital Reflector , 98 feet long, was launched on Dec 3rd inside a Cubesat. It will inflate when in low-Earth orbit and is expected to shine as a second-magnitude moving star. Initially it will be visible from the southern hemisphere but will eventually make passes over the northern hemisphere.
It is expected to be in orbit for about 8 months before burnimg up
