Saw about a dozen around a month ago, and have been waiting ever since. The skies have been cloudy and no passes for the next 5 days but the skies are clearing here is hoping to see it again.

Good evening from the very chilly Adelaide Hills in South Australia! My name is Ann-Marie, I've always had a fascination with space and have been watching the skies whenever the ISS passes overhead. A bit disappointed that I didn't spot any Starlink satellites tonight but not going to let that stop me!!

Hi from Canada! Been out Starlink train spotting tonight. My dad has taken me out satellite spotting since I was little, and I'm recently getting back into it!

Ciao a tutti, sono appena arrivato. Sono Antonio dall'altopiano della Sila in Calabria, dove meteo permettendo, il cielo di notte presenta uno scenario MERAVIGLIOSO. La sera prima di andare a letto, e durante i risvegli nutturni, non posso fare a meno di sbirciare il firmamento, osservare la via lattea, e ogni volta è un'emozione indescrivibile. Da piccolo ricordo che la nonna mi indicava quei puntini luminosi in cielo ai quali lei stessa dava il nome. Da allora quando alzo lo sguardo al cielo cerco "I TRI ALI" come chiamava lei la cintura di orione.

Hello all from bonny Scotland . I cant say that I have experience or knowledge of the solar system or space. I simply stare into the dark sky's where ever I go and wonder what is up there !.As an engineer I know what it takes to make a trip to the stars happen ,well done to every man ,woman who helped make our journey to touch the blackness of space .Maybe one day we will meet our neighbour's.

Helo from the southern tip of Lake Michigan. I’m an amateur astronomer for 55 years now and my son is an astrophysicist. My first memory of a ‘satellite’ spotting was Apollo 11, in the constellation Gemini, on their way to the moon! Last night at 9PM CDT I was casually looking at the sky on a rare clear night and spotted the last dozen satellites in the latest Starlink group. They were about 30 seconds between each and spaced 10 degrees apart. I didn’t know what they were at the time, except that they were satellites. But investigation led me to this site, and I am pleased to be a new member. I plan to see the next group sooner after launch to see the “train” of satellites. Cheers!

Hi I am siddharth and currently locked down in Hyderabad. Love tracking and watching the skies. Do star trails every now and then. A couple of months back I was shooting Tancho Cranes in Hokkaido and saw the entire starlink train pass overhead in some spectacular night skies. Have seen the ISS over Hyderabad as well just after some rains and the sky was clear. Would love to be a part of this community and learn and share.

Greetings all. I have been watching satellites go over since I was young and watching TelStar go over the DC area. We used to call the Smithsonian hotline to get the times of the passes so we could go out and watch for the passes. I now live in Naples, FL and am 69 years old. Now I get text notifications on my cell phone. Technology has come so far, but I find it still amazing to go out and just watch as they go over.

Hello, I'm James from Jarreau, Louisiana, USA and just started learning about this site and the ability to get satellite tracking info. I've been getting so bored during the "stay at home/quarantine times for the Corona Virus". No live or broadcast sporting events to attend or watch anymore has really left me searching for things of interest. I'm hoping to get to see the satellite train and the Int. Space Station from my location.

Hello skywatchers! Just registered after an unfruitful attempt to spot Starlink a few nights ago. Saw a piece about it in the local rag (Huddersfield Examiner) but the location info was poor, so I saw nothing. Have been interested in astronomy since I was a kid, and had that interest renewed when I lived in France a couple of years ago; lucky enough to be in regions with almost no light pollution. Wonderful! BTW - What's a satellite 'flare'??

Hello everyone. My name is Jim Heise. I am a professor in mechanical engineering at Iowa State University. I teach mechanical engineering design and advise the Cardinal Space Mining Club at ISU. We have been competing in the NASA Robotic Mining Competition yearly since 2010. I enjoy engineering and have been getting more and more interested in aerospace engineering and planetary geology since being involved with this competition. Recent commercial space activity has my curiosity peaked to begin closer tracking a space objects.

Hello everyone! I'm from Utrecht in the Netherlands. Watching the starlink 6 satellites pass over half an hour after their launch yesterday made me join this website because of it's tracking capabilities. I am mainly experimenting with receiving SSTV images from the ISS and pictures from weather satellites like Meteor M2 and NOAA.

Hi there from Czechia, Europe! I'm an IT student at uni and a huge fan of Elon Musk. My girlfriend and I do a bit of hobby photography as well, and not once I wanted to try and shoot something space-related. Haven't gotten to anything other than a few long exposure pics, but this website might be the start of something new! If you wanted, show some love & press follow on our Instagram account @fufi.photo! So far, no space content at all, but if all goes well, this summer, I'm going to the mountains with no light pollution at all. I found out about this website today because Starlink-6 is launching right after sunset for us, and I thought I might get lucky enough to spot it!

Hi everyone. I'm in South Central Michigan. I've stood in the yard on Clear nights watching the stars since I was a Kid.. I talk to the Constellation Orion almost nightly as he watches over us in the Winter Night sky.. I'm in process of wishing him well on his Journey until we see each other again in Late Fall. Last night as I was doing that was the first time I saw Starlink. I knew SpaceX was doing many things, But I had not heard of Starlink. I was outside closing up my chicken coop and looked up at the stars like I usually do.. Right now I have been watching for that comet we are supposed to be seeing within the next couple months... AND I saw something unusual that I had never seen before.. I even came in to get my wife to make sure I wasn't seeing things, and yes, she saw them too. A string of satellites, evenly spaced, all traveling in a straight line from west to east. I watched for a long time. With lower traffic on the highway it is eerily quiet here after dark. I listened closely.. I could hear no engines. At High altitudes, if I look hard enough I can usually see the Aircraft marker lights twinkling, the red, green and white light that are every flashing.. There was no marker lights. I counted more than 40 of them.... then as the west to east line stopped, there was another dozen that were running from North to due south. same spacing, same speed in a straight line ... Just before I came in a Jetliner DID fly over. YUP, there were the twinkling lights, and that faint jet engine sound as IT flew over.... I thought there was no way I would figure out what they were.. WOW was I surprised. I typed exactly what I saw into the google search bar.. and DAYUM.. somebody reported seeing the EXACT same thing back in December. Now I know what it is. It's going to be fun to watch. I love seeing ISS when it flies over.

Hello, I used to sit in Wales with relatives long long time ago watching satellites passing. Now where I am sky is not so bright but do enjoy star gazing and the occasional satellite. Watched Starlink pass by last night, magical.

Hello all from a small village in Norfolk UK. Hingham. We are fortunate to have dark skies here. Last night I observed the ISS. Whilst doing this, I saw the star link train, as I was so informed by a friend. I was blown away, and decided to investigate. So here I am.

Greetings from Sistersville, WV. Surprisingly good observing tonight considering the weather forecast is for rain. I saw 3 of the Starlink-4 pass starting at 8:14pm tonight. Followed by Iridium 154. Then 6 of the Starlink-2 pass starting at 9:39pm. These were very dim and best observed through binoculars.

Another newbie here. I saw 8 for the 8:30 pass over West Virginia. They were very bright but short lived. Almost like Iridium flares. Starlink-3, I think. I think I saw one of the Starlink-4 series tonight. It was directly overhead when I spotted it and in a difficult position to observe. It was moving very quick, but within the correct time for observation and the correct track. I am at: 39.5605° North, 80.9975° West In lovely Sistersville, WV
