At the moment i'm working on a 'light receiver' which translates very small modulations of the light into audio signals. This can be used to monitor the ambient light, or it can be used with a lens on front of the photodiode to look at certain objects. It can be mounted parallel to a camcorder, and the audio signal can be fed into the external microphone jack of the camcorder (if it has one) and then you can hear light modulations of objects you are recording on video. This may be useful to detect the difference between a satellite and a UFO, if you hear strange sounds it can not be a satellite reflecting the sunlight.

You can make something rather easily to look at a street light and hear sounds but an object in space may be harder. This sort of thing if figured out would defiantly be helpful. Each object would have a different signature that could be heard and also seen digitally with software such as "Audacity".
