Starlink: Light pollution from SpaceX satellites

There could soon be thousands of them orbiting Earth. These bizarre lines of glowing dots recently spotted in the night sky are Starlink satellites. Here's why Elon Musk's latest project is so controversial.

    It's not enough to have Earth damaged and polluted that much...now Sky is next to be humans' playground and soon after an orbiting landfill. All these for what? Oh.. internet..

    I dont know what the hell is wrong with people like Elon! Instead of creating this planet a better place...saving those people with unfortunate situaution...here he goes.....exploring extraterrestial while destructing what we have!!! Let me suggest you something.....pack all your money...without food, water and go to whichever planet you want to go.....then see for yourself....which is more worth!?? Money or humanity?? Money or food and water??

    We are making our own orbital trash prison. If we go on we won't be able to leave earth anymore, let alone build a moon base 🙄

    How come we don't try to install large telescopes on the dark side of the moon , with the level of tech we got ,transmission should be easy, and the feed can run 24/7 , are the moon quakes to much or we just not funding it?

    Exactly what David Icke was saying! And had every social media account banned. Disgusting Musk should resume to the cars

    Wow 1900 has signed a petition against space internet ! I wonder how many will sign a petition for cheap fast world wide internet... I for one would gladly sign for the internet - If Musk is successful with starlink (and Tesla) then he can afford to go colonize Mars - and I'm sure the view from mars is much better for astronomers up there, and it wouldn't surprise me if Musk gave them a pair of binoculars they could use.. And dont tell me that its impossible to automatically edit out the effect of the satelites on the pictures... we are living in the 21st' century
