Alien Train

I saw a train of stars cross the sky single file tonight in controlled flight. Thought for sure it was some sort of extraterrestrial something or other.

Turns out it’s about twenty SpaceX satellites circling the globe gaining altitude with each pass in low earth orbit.

Starlink 6-10 (August 17, 2023)

On August 17, at 00:14 GMT (August 16, 08:14 p.m. EDT), SpaceX launched the 99th batch of 22 Starlink internet satellites. The Falcon 9 rocket lifted off from the Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida, USA.

So cool.
