An astronomer captured SpaceX’s recently-launched Starlink satellites on video – Space Saturdays June 1, 2019

I saw this a couple of days ago while researching for my Space Saturdays post this week – An astronomer captured SpaceX’s recently-launched Starlink satellites on video https://www.theverge.com/2019/5/25/18639905/spacex-starlink-satellites-video-dr-marco-langbroek-netherlands.

Earlier this week, SpaceX successfully launched its first 60 Starlink satellites into orbit around the Earth. An amateur astronomer in the Netherlands caught sight of them orbiting Earth after deployment, and captured the scene on video.

Astronomer Dr. Marco Langbroek noted on his blog that he calculated where the satellites would be orbiting, and waited with his camera. The result is a spectacular one: a string of bright dots flying across the sky, prompting some people to report that they saw UFOs.
