Look up at the sky tonight and you will see a flotilla of satellites across the sky.
The SportX Starlink mission has attracted a lot of attention since multi-millionaire Elon Musk launched the project in 2013. Since then, the search for 10, 20, 30 or more objects on trains across the sky has been increasing.
A Plymouth resident took the picture shortly after sunset on Monday.
Ross Almet told Plymouth Live: “We’ll have to walk more about 20 long lines over Whitley.”
According to reports, visits may get less frequent in the future.
Starlink has reportedly lost the brightness of its low-flying satellite after annoying astronomers.
The project saw several rocket launches and is designed to provide high-speed broadband internet with less terrestrial hassle around the world.
So far, SpaceX has launched a total of 597 Starlink satellites out of the planned 12,000.

SpaceX has previously explained: “Performance surpasses far-reaching satellite Internet, and a global network limited by ground infrastructure, Starlink will provide high-speed broadband Internet in places where access is unreliable, expensive or not fully available.”
