My Leeds_SE video meteor camera picked up some of these peskies, one clip had 5 of them traipsing across the sky.
I see that ‘improvements to mitigate the impact on astronomers’ weren’t evident last night. Hopefully the satellites will be fainter when they attain their final orbits.
The Heavens Above website FAQ says:
“The brightness of a spacecraft is influenced by several factors…our magnitude estimates should only be treated as a rough guide, and the actual brightness you see could be considerably more or less than this”
‘Enjoy’ the show!
