The Atmosphere and it's Double

On a hill overlooking a small city, the audience reclines on their backs in a large pitch of grass. A projection screen is suspended horizontally above them and framed by the night sky. In the city; a balloon satellite sets off transmitting a cameras view to the screen as it receeds from the planet. As the satellite takes the camera gradually out of broadcast range it eclipses the moon. In the static , the local space program is depicted.
