Spring Bass Posted May 26, 2019 Share Posted May 26, 2019 Don't celebrate yet. A bunch of astronomers on Twitter have pointed out that the full constellation for StarLink alone - never mind any additional ones put up by other companies - would have serious negative effects on both professional and amateur astronomy and stargazing. Musk claimed no one would be able to see them after dusk, but that appears to be wrong - some of the sightings were well into the night, and those same astronomers have pointed out that a couple hundred of the full constellation would be visible all night long in high-latitude locations. That makes it potentially a global problem for SpaceX, when opposition arrises to further deployment of StarLink. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
