Communications with satellites in geosynchronous orbits often require satellite dishes, which you can see on the sides of residential apartment buildings.
The Starlink network will become operational once the satellite count reaches 800 requiring a dozen more such successful launches.
When the Starlink satellites were launched, they looked like a trail of moving lights through the sky.
"We continue to track the progress of the Starlink satellites during early orbit operations".
But astronomers told Forbes they worry the firm's Starlink satellites will interfere with gathering of imagery.
SpaceX has received FCC approval to launch 4,425 satellites into low earth orbit (LEO) for high speed Internet services - with the first batch going live in demo mode last week. Over the coming days, the sting of satellites will be making 2-3 passes around the Earth each night. However, those unaware of the launch reported that they had seen UFOs. The orbit is slightly higher than the ISS (International Space Station).
The discussion about light pollution took front and center over the weekend after amateur astronomers released footage of the Starlink satellites, showing them to be much brighter than people imagined.
Sure enough, their brightness has diminished partly as they stabilized into orbit, but for astronomers, this was a clear message: observations are bound to get more hard, and there's going to be a lot more objects in the way.
In areas near the poles, including Canada and northern Europe, satellites in low Earth orbit can be illuminated throughout the night during the summer months.
On a positive note, SpaceX has set up an interesting plan to help reduce overpopulation with satellites and space junk.
NASA estimates there are more than 5,000 satellites orbiting the Earth.
However, after the excitement calmed down, astronomers both professional and amateur seem to have concerns about the Starlink constellation obstructing their view of space and all its mysteries.
