With the pleasant weather in recent days, there’s a good opportunity to witness the Starlink Satellites passing over our area tonight. These satellites can be seen as a line of bright dots in the sky, all moving at the same speed and direction. Although SpaceX doesn’t provide information as clearly as NASA does for the International Space Station, there is a high likelihood that they will be visible tonight.
You can expect to see the satellites around 8:45pm, and they will be visible for approximately 5 minutes. To spot them, look toward the Northwest sky before they reach a maximum altitude of 87 degrees above the horizon. As they continue to move towards the East, they will gradually fade from sight.
The weather conditions should be favorable for viewing tonight, with temperatures dropping into the low 70s and mostly clear skies. Take advantage of this opportunity to witness the Starlink Satellites in action.
