PERTH residents are encouraged to look up at the southern skies tonight to spot the Humanity Star.
It will be at it’s highest visibility about 7.51pm.
A description from the Humanity Star website said the highly reflective satellite is visible to the naked eye and blinks brightly across the night sky to “create a shared experience for everyone on the planet”.
Created by Rocket Lab founder and chief executive Peter Beck, the Humanity Star is a geodesic sphere made from carbon fibre with 76 highly reflective panels.
It spins rapidly, reflecting the sun’s rays back to Earth, creating a flashing light that can be seen against a backdrop of stars.
Orbiting the Earth every 90 minutes and visible from anywhere on the globe, the Humanity Star is designed to be a bright symbol and reminder to all on Earth about our fragile place in the universe.
