"Wow !! I'm in shock! Large amounts of Starlink satellites passed through our skies tonight [the observatory]"said." DECam exposure was severely affected by 19 people! Starlink satellites took more than 5 minutes! Quite depressing … This is not nice at all! "
But astronomers fear that the more crowded low Earth orbit will interfere with the observation of more telescopes.
Satellites in the World
The most prominent, such as the International Space Station, is more easily understood in Earth's orbit and in the summer when the sun shines longer – so satellites have more time to reflect it.
And many more satellites can join those in orbit. SpaceX had permission to broadcast more than 10,000 satellites from regulators and recently requested more than 30,000 additions.
In response to the first turmoil in May, Musk claimed that Starlink satellites would not affect astronomical observations.
A SpaceX spokesman who reached CNN on Wednesday said he was talking to leading astronomy groups to find ways in which satellites would not interfere with their work. At a more tactical level, it makes black the basic color of the Starlink satellites, which it hopes will help. If necessary, SpaceX says it can also adjust the orbits of some satellites.
In other words: they are listening.
