In addition to three CubeSats, Rocket Lab launched a fourth satellite aboard Electron on Sunday. Here’s how the company describes it on Twitter:

“The Humanity Star – a bright, blinking satellite now orbiting Earth, visible to the naked eye in the night sky. Launched on #StillTesting, The Humanity Star is designed to encourage everyone to look up and consider our place in the universe.

“The Humanity Star will only be on orbit for around nine months, so you’ll need to be quick to catch a glimpse. Track its location on website.”
