According to BBC, "The plan is to put a micro-satellite in orbit that will fire tiny particles into the atmosphere. As they fall to Earth they will burn up and become on-demand shooting stars that can be directed to any chosen location and be seen within a radius of up to 200km (124 miles)." Rie Yamomoto of Project Sky Canvas elaborated the procedure of the satellite, "They essentially burn in different colors when they're reentering the atmosphere," he said in a report of Travel and Leisure.
