    Finally the wait is over!
    After the launch being delayed a few times, ALOS is finally on it's way to orbit. 
    It's orbit will be roughly 700 km high, and sun sync. So it's orbital height is less then the
    adeos, noaa satellites also in sun sync orbit.
    Allright, 2 more bright satellites in orbit, to orbserve. The more the better. Great for showing
    at public observing events.
