On Sunday, Elon Musk’s SpaceX corporation sent a new group of devices into space. The “space train” could be seen in the Polish sky on Thursday.
On Thursday afternoon, a “space train” flew over our heads. It was the Starlink group – 22 new satellites from SpaceX, which belongs to Elon Musk.
Starlinks in the sky
On Kontakt 24 we received a photo report from the town of Miękisz Nowy (Podkarpackie Voivodeship). The photos show a row of lights. The author of the photos, an Internet user named David, told us that the flight was observed around 5:30 p.m. on Thursday.
Starlinks are satellites whose task is to provide Internet access around the world. Over two thousand devices have already been launched.
Starlinks from the latest G7-6 group can already be observed in the sky for several nights. As Karol Wójcicki, a popularizer of astronomy and author of the blog “With your head in the stars”, wrote on Tuesday, the devices were launched on Sunday morning. Soon they will begin heading to their assigned orbits.
