Cool Gear: 'Misty' - Stealth Satellite

Your not paranoid, someone IS watching you:

'Misty' is the code-name widely attributed to a stealthy imaging satellite launched by the space shuttle Atlantis in 1990. A US patent from Teledyne Industries details a method of suppressing the visibility of satellites by means of an inflatable, reflective balloon, which would be inflated in orbit, and pointed towards the earth to deflect radar, lasers and also to defeat optical searches.

Due to the covert and highly secret nature of this program, it's not known what technology is used to hide the satellites, but this is a credible scheme.

With stuff like this floating around My Goog Hat I idea is not so dumb after all…
