Elon Musk launched 60 of his Starlink satellites last week and they’ve already been recorded in the night sky looking very bright and visible. Last Thursday, SpaceX fired dozens of satellites into Space that will one day beam hyper-fast internet to people across the globe. These satellites are the first of an intended 12,000 that Musk is preparing to send into orbit. Many people have since spotted the satellites in the night sky and were shocked by how bright there are. When spotted flying above the Netherlands, a Dutch UFO website was inundated with more than 150 reports from people thinking that they were looking at UFOs.It is thought that the satellites look so bright at the moment because they have not yet reached their intended orbit height of 340 miles above Earth. They should reach this height in the coming month and only then will astronomers be able to work out the true impact they will have on star constellation visibility. The Guardian reported that Cees Bassa, an astronomer at the Netherlands Institute for Radio Astronomy, said: ”I saw… Read full this story
