SpaceX’s Gwynne Shotwell says “subsequent launches will see [Starlink] satellites with experimental coatings to reduce their brightness in the sky”

Elon Musk's Starlink internet satellites could hide killer asteroids, astronomers warn

It appears that if you are in a dark-sky location, the Starlink satellites that are up now are often naked-eye visible. Some experts have projected that when the whole fleet is up (SpaceX plans to deploy tens of thousands), the sky will be c r a w l i n g

Bob's blog: Earlier this month, SpaceX launched 60 small satellites with a single Falcon 9 Rocket. This was the latest launch in the Starlink Project, which plans to eventually become a constellation of up to 12,000 satellites.

These are the tracks left in a telescope's field of view by the first batch of SpaceX 'Starlink' internet satellites. Astronomers are warning that getting our broadband from space might come at a cost: dark skies. 🛰️🔭🌌😯 Story: 📷: @GirgisVictoria

Will SpaceX's Starlink mega-constellation 'ruin' astronomy's biggest ever eye on the sky? by @jamieacarter 

@Topher_BB  The number and the brightness. Currently we have a few thousand satellites, and many are not naked-eye visible ever; Starlink’s plans are for 42,000.

Engineering question: Is the production of light from LEO satellites an inherent problem or can companies like Starlink create solutions?

Falcon 9 delivers 60 Starlink satellites to orbit

Team is go for launch of 60 Starlink sats tomorrow—heaviest payload to date, first re-flight of a fairing, and first Falcon 9 to fly a fourth mission. Watching 1 sat that may not orbit raise; if not, 100% of its components will quickly burn up in Earth’s atmosphere

Starlink will connect the globe with reliable and affordable high-speed broadband services

First 60 @SpaceX  Starlink satellites loaded into Falcon fairing. Tight fit.

Starlink mission will be heaviest @SpaceX  payload ever at 18.5 tons. If all goes well, each launch of 60 satellites will generate more power than Space Station & deliver 1 terabit of bandwidth to Earth.
