SpaceX satellites spark Dutch UFO frenzy

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

"A Dutch website set up to record UFO sightings was flooded early Saturday with reports after a "train of stars" was spotted crossing the Netherlands' skies, sparking fears of an alien invasion.

"But what some thought to be a close encounter of the third kind turned out to be a string of some 60 satellites launched by US-based SpaceX hours earlier as part of its "Starlink" constellation."

The Starlink satellites, which use a krypton ion thruster with very low thrust, will be disbursing over the next few days and will likely become far less visible, a least that is what they hope.  https://techcrunch.com/2019/05/24/spacex-reveals-more-starlink-info-after-launch-of-first-60-satellites/

Yep, hope.  I'm not sure SpaceX would keep launching if they are going to put thousands of reflective satellites in orbit knowing the furor it would cause (include me in that furor) so let's see what happens before condemning it but it will be a great boon to many parts of the world that can't get connected to he internet if SpaceX can make it work.  All the satellites will deorbit naturally at end of life so they won't add to the clutter.
