Starlink

If you haven't yet seen the SpaceX Starlink satellites fly overhead treat yourself and take a look. These are SpaceX's prototype for high bandwidth Internet access. They launch 60 at a time and they slowly move into position. Until they do you can see this awesome train make its way across the sky. I caught it last night and it is so cool to see a giant line move across the night sky.

Here is a webpage to calculate how you can see them by your location:

I haven't used this data yet. Last night I saw a tweet that gave me an idea when and where to look but it seems correct.

Here is a video of what it looks like:

  • Thanks for the heads up! It should actually be visible for me in an hour from now, so I'll keep an eye out (though sadly my view is pretty limited towards the south where I'm supposed to look...)

    That's really cool!  We get such overcast skies here but I'm going to try to see it tonight!
