Quick Answer: When Can I See The Elon Musk Starlink?

The parade of satellites will first appear at 9:05 p.m.

low in the southwestern sky when they’ll be too faint to see.

But 2 minutes later at 9:07 p.m.

you should see a short, twinkling line of tiny lights above and left of Sirius (see the map below) when they reach their greatest altitude and brightness..

Tonight, you need to be looking up at 9.35pm to see the satellites. The satellites will move from west to southeast across the sky. To spot them, start looking just above the horizon (10 degrees) at 9.35pm and track directly upwards and across the sky.

Can I see Elon Musk satellites tonight?

A fleet of SpaceX Starlink satellites will once again be visible in the skies above the UK tonight, offering sky gazers a chance to witness a string of up to 60 micro-satellites pass overhead.

It appears that Starlink will cost approximately $80 per month, but there’s no clear price guidance yet. It all goes well, we’ll find out by summer 2020 when Starlink is expected to make the jump from science-fiction to technology fact.

Currently, SpaceX has 360 satellites in orbit. The Starlink 6 mission will boost that number to 420. SpaceX’s Starlink satellite network is a megaconstellation designed to provide fast and affordable internet access to people around the world, particularly in remote or under-served locations.

What does a satellite look like from Earth at night?

Viewing is best away from city lights and in cloud-free skies. The satellite will look like a star steadily moving across the sky for a few minutes. If the lights are blinking, you probably are seeing a plane, not a satellite. Satellites do not have their own lights that make them visible.

You can also track the satellites using the Starlink app on your mobile phone. When you open the application, click a satellite number from the list provided and select your current location to reveal the visible times. The estimated times – according to good visibility – are as follows, according to findstarlink.com.

Can you see satellites with naked eyes?

Surprisingly there are a large portion of manmade satellites that can be seen with the naked eye. Sightings can number up to a hundred in a single night if you have good viewing conditions. To identify a satellite you are looking for a star that looks like it is slowly moving across the night sky.

According to SpaceX, Starlink will offer speeds of up to a gigabit per second at latencies from 25 milliseconds to 35 milliseconds. That’s much faster than old-school satellites. HughesNet, the grandpa of satellite Internet, offers download speeds up to 25Mbps and upload speeds up to 3Mbps.
