Have a guess.

And you do this with a satellite? How did you measure the angle?

Method been around for over 60 years

en.wikipedia.org...

Teams of amateur observers were trained to spot and track satellites in the 1950's

How do I know they didn’t fake their numbers? Like pixels size and distance?

If there were real amateur observers there would be millions of them each with there own video.

Anyone can get a telescope with tracking and a camera, and recreate the results with their friends.

So now I have to purchase all this equipment? How about a geostationary satellites, wouldn’t be easier to do on that?

For the triangulation method. Do they account for curvature on the adjacent did of the triangle?

Probably not many people give thought to this, but lots of commercial businesses and government departments around the world get satellites lanuched into space for all sorts of reasons, such as mapping, monitoring, communications, navigation, science, etc.

spaceflightnow.com...

The upcoming SpaceX launch will have 60 (!) sattelites in the payload. Companies pay for those satellites to be manufactured and launched, are you saying they're all just pretending to do so, or pay for nothing?

A lot of the data that comes from these satellites is accessible on the Internet.

You either care about proving your point or you don't. If you have any friends, you could send them a long way off and use a cheap protractor each.

For geostationary ones just get satellite T.V.

I've personally set up a system to grab weather pictures from passing satellites, it's not difficult.

As for your 'amateur observers' comment, that just reveals that for you, if it isn't on youtube it isn't real. Read a book, do some actual legwork. There are many amateur satellite trackers all over the world, you could join them and prove your point really quickly.

Lol. Still potential fakery. If it were so, millions upon millions of space fans would have their own amateur videos on YouTube. Like fortnite videos. There’s so many of them.
