I was outside having a fag , and a string of satellites went over ,about 18.30 tonight .. one after the other , for around 10 minutes . Not as bright as the space station , but easily visible . Not seen them before , what are they for then ?

I saw a recent news report about mini internet satellites causing problems for astronomers as they caused streaks of light across the sky.

Took me back to standing in the garden with my dad waiting for Sputnik to appear.

That was a few years ago.

We saw it too!

Copied from my post in November, on another thread:

I’ve just downloaded this from the iOS AppStore: **LINK**

https://apps.apple.com/gb/app/orbit-satellite-tracking/id1141694548

It’s free, and appears to do what it should. yes

I have been watching old episodes of the X-Files. Mulder would know what the un-identified objects in the sky are.
