Elon Musk's Starlink satellites

So who saw them?

Looked pretty spectacular from Essex tonight. A train of fast-moving bright lights going across the sky. Currently around 360 up there with plans for 42,000 in total! Concerns that they will begin to block out the sky for observation purposes.

They are already ruining astronomical observations, I've not seen them yet though. I can't see enough of the sky without going for a walk and, well, #StayAtHome...

Also concerns of adding more space junk and collision dangers when orbiting or leaving/returning to Earth.

In fact here is a very good short sifi film showing the very problem of space junk in the future and families in orbit making a living out of collecting junk (stars Mackenzie Crook of 'pirates of the caribbean' fame)
