The principle of stellar triangulation was suggested by Y. Väisälä, a Finnish astronomer and geometer. The method is based on photographing light signals against a stellar background from at least two stations. The exact time determination of the flashes makes it possible to express these directions in an Earth-fixed frame.The light signals can be produced using various methods. Targets such as balloon-borne beacons, rockets or satellites are possible. The first possibility will be investigated here.
